Silence of U.S. on Nazism Scored

Download PDF for this date

In the Jewish Daily Bulletin broadcast over Station WEVD last night Mr. Herman Bernstein, editor of the Jewish Daily Bulletin, discussed the question, “Why Discriminate in Favor of Hitler?” He referred to Lion Feuchtwanger’s latest statement in the new volume of the Brown Book, containing the list of 800 people murdered under the Hitler regime during the past year, and analyzed the Nazi propaganda machine of falsehood.

Mr. Bernstein then enumerated various instances in which the American Government had voiced its protest against foreign governments because of atrocities committed there, and asked why Hitler was now treated with greater consideration than the Tsar of Russia and the Sultan of Turkey were treated when Jews were pogrommed in Russia and Armenians were massacred in Turkey.

He pointed out that the Hitler government was not only persecuting a portion of its own population in Germany, but was also engaged in activities intended to foment strife and hate among Americans and to undermine democratic American institutions.
