Called Jew, ‘aryan’ Brings Libel Suit

Download PDF for this date

Is the word “Jew” libelous when applied to an “Aryan?”

The Warsaw court will answer this question as result of a libel suit brought today by an “Aryan” firm against the Gazeta Warszawska, organ of the anti-Semitic National Democratic party.

The paper, in publishing a list of Jewish firms to be boycotted by non-Jews, also included, by error, a non-Jewish company, the proprietor of which is able to prove his “Aryan” descent.
