League Asks U.S. Censure of Nazi Evils

Download PDF for this date

A clear and concise protest by the United States Government against persecution by the Nazi regime in Germany was demanded in a resolution adopted by the Women’s International League of Peace and Freedom at its national convention here yesterday.

The resolution asked that the government protest against concentration camps, deprivation of women’s rights and other evils of the Hitler regime.

While urging good will toward the German people, the resolution also favored generous help to minorities, including Jews, Catholics, liberals, pacifists and radicals.

Adoption of a formal boycott of German goods was rejected by a vote of thirty-seven to fourteen, following an exciting debate. Members were left free, however, to carry on the boycott as private individuals.
