See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The headquarters of the American Jewish Congress was picketed here last night by the ultra-rightist National Renaissance Party. Demonstrators carried placards denouncing the Congress for “torturing” Germany. The picketing lasted one hour, in accordance with a police permit.

The pickets included Joseph H. Madole, leader of the group, who carried a placard stating “Jewish Vampires Bleed Germany.” Madole and five others, guided by a contingent of police, stood across the street from the entrance to the Stephen Wise Congress House as guests were arriving for a meeting on Germany sponsored by the Horace Kallen chapter of the Congress.

Dr. Neils Hansen, West German deputy Consul General in New York, saw the pickets as he arrived to address the meeting. He spoke on the policies of the new coalition government in Bonn headed by Chancellor Kurt Kiesinger.
