Groups Join Meeting Monday to Fight New Reich Terror

Download PDF for this date

A number of national Jewish organizations associated themselves on Friday with the American Jewish Congress and the Jewish Labor Committee in a call to an emergency conference at the Hotel Pennsylvania tomorrow night (Monday) to take action on recent assaults upon the Jews in Germany.

The Labor Committee, of which B. C. Vladeck is chairman, in a statement Friday, declared, “The Jewish workers of America do not need to have interpreted for them the most recent physical attacks upon the Jews of Germany or to have explained for them the meaning of Hitlerism and Fascism.

“We are determined to conduct the anti-Hitler battle on all fronts as Jews, as citizens and as workers. Our ranks must be closed. Our action must be determined.”

Morris Rothenberg, speaking for the Zionist Organization of America, said that “the bloody events of the past week in Nazi Germany make clear that unless decisive action is taken at once to halt the Hitler terror, we may expect to find bloody attacks upon the Jews a daily occurrence in Germany.”

Other organizations which joined in the call are Independent Order B’nai B’rith, Hadassah, Jewish National Workers Alliance, Federation of Polish Jews, Young Israel, Order Sons of Zion, and Order B’rith Abraham.
