British Threaten End of Friendly Relations with Reich Veterans

Download PDF for this date

German War Veterans were notified in a letter by the British Legion that unless persecution of

minorities in Germany ends the British veterans will break off their proposed friendly contacts with the German ex-soldiers, it was revealed today by Major Brunel Cohen, treasurer of the British Legion.

Addressing the Jewish war veterans here, Major Cohen declared that recent events in Germany are condemned by the British veterans.

Major Cohen last June refused to join the good-will tour of British ex-soldiers in Germany, despite the fact that he was scheduled to go as a member of the party. He declared at the time that he did not wish the German government to interpret his visit as an indication that British Jews are favorably inclined to the Hitler regime.
