July 29, 1934
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Deploring tendencies toward an exaggerated nationalism in this country, Professor Bernhard J. Stern, of Columbia University, has issued a warning against Fascist manifestations here and advised Jewish workers that their only hope is to align themselves with the general working class which alone can fight Fascism and create a better society.

Stern spoke in a symposium under the auspices of the American League Against War and Fascism, at which Rev. Eugene Shrigley of Ozone Park presided. Other participants were Rev. W. M. Horton of the Union Theological Seminary and Rabbi J. J. Weinstein who described Germany as a focal point of infection for anti-Semitism for all of Europe except Russia.
