A united “Anti-Jewish Committee of France,” seeking to combat the “Jewish influence” and “foreign and Jewish invasion” has been formed here at a meeting of leaders of a number of small anti-Semitic groups.

Deputy Darquier de Pellepoix, founder of the anti-Semitic National Club, is chairman of the committee, and other members of the committee’s board include Henri-Robert Petit, M. Poirso, of the Anti-Masonic Union, and Jean Boissel, editor of Awakening of the People, anti-Jewish monthly.
