Vandals Smear Swastikas on Mexico City Jewish Homes

Download PDF for this date

The outbreak of hostilities in the Middle East has inspired Nazis and their Arab supporters here to renewed activity with swastikas found smeared on a number of Jewish houses in Mexico City. The houses were also plastered with such slogans as “Long Live Nasser.”

In other anti-Semitic incidents in recent days, the Agudath Achim Synagogue and the building of the Zionist Youth Organization were both attacked by unknown vandals who broke windows in the buildings.
