Italy Stands with Reich on Anti-semitism, Farinacci Holds

Download PDF for this date

Strong reaffirmation of Italy’s partnership with Germany on the anti-Semitic front was voiced on the radio today by Roberto Farinacci, leading Italian anti-Semite, member of the Fascist Grand Council and former Fascist Party secretary.

Farinacci, in a broadcast to Fascist youth, accused Jewry of responsibility for all the evils now besetting humanity. He listed the United States, Britain, France, Switzerland, Belgium and the Netherlands as among the countries now “in the hands of the Jews.”

Concluding, Farinacci said: “Now only the Reich and Italy are definitely sheltered from the Jewish peril, thanks to the action undertaken in this direction by fascism and Nazism–action which the Italian Government is firmly decided to pursue with the utmost energy.”
