Peace Leaders Warn Reich on Anti – Semitism

Download PDF for this date

The International Peace Congress now in session here today sent a communique to the German Embassy in London pointing out that Anglo-German relations are being severely damaged by the persistence of the Germans in their anti-Jewish discriminations.

The letter points out, too, that there can be no friendship with a country which resorts to such barbarism as does Nazi Germany in its treatment of the Jews.

Today’s session of the Congress was addressed by Miss Estelle Sternberger, executive director of the World Peaceways, and the only American delegate attending the Congress. Her subject was: “Publicizing and Advertising Peace.”

Other speakers at today’s session were Hon. Arthur Henderson, British labor leader, and Sir Norman Angell, British statesman and peace leader.

The communique follows on the heels of a resolution adopted a few weeks ago by Federation of League of Nation Societies at its Congress in Brussels. The resolution condemned Germany for its anti-Jewish legislation and asked the League of Nations and all member governments to intervene effectively to secure the restoration of social and political rights for the Jews in Germany.

The resolution went on to call the situation which now obtains in Germany, “an outrage to the conscience of all civilized humanity.”
