Italian Paper Renews Anti-jewish Drive

Download PDF for this date

Il Regime Fascista, Cremona Fascist daily, today renewed its anti-Semitic campaign with another attack on Jews as Communists. The paper, edited by Roberto Farinacci, has been in the forefront of an anti-Jewish drive being pressed by a number of Fascist organs.

The current attack is based on a report from the Rigasche Rundschau, pro-Nazi organ of the German minority in Latvia, which stated in a recent issue that ninety percent of arrested Communists in Riga were Jews.

“Whenever there are threats of political upheavals or disorders,” the Farinacci paper comments, “those who are responsible can be found in the neighborhood of the synagogue.”
