Dutch Princess Snubs Her Anti-semitic Kin

Download PDF for this date

Crown Princess Juliana of Holland today refused to attend the christening of the son of a member of the royal family, Prince Von Wied of Dierdorf, because of the latter’s anti-Semitism.

The Crown Princess decided not to attend the christening after she received press reports pointing out that Dierdorf, the prince’s ancestral seat, is plastered with anti-Semitic posters.
