ing the address of Dr. Joseph Tenenbaum, chairman of the boycott committee of the American Jewish Congress, under whose auspices the conference was held.


The tenor of both the resolution and Dr. Tenenbaum’s speech was that a mere change in rulers instead of in the Nazi system should not lead to the calling off of boycott. Among conditions set down for discontinuing the boycott was the abolition of the ‘Aryan clause,’ restoration of all rights to Jews and compensation to them for losses and suffering, freedom of conscience and religious belief to all, freedom of labor from oppression, property restoration to unions, and abolition of spying and abolition of spying and persecution for political reasons.

Those present last night constituted themselves a vigilantes committee for the intensification of the boycott. Trade sections were set up to supervise work in various trades. A special committee was named to deal with importers still doing business in Nazi Germany.

Figures of Leipzig Fair were cited by Professor Max Winkler, economist, to demonstrate the worldwide success of the boycott. “For years the fair has been regarded as the most dependable barometer of German exports,” he said. “The disastrous showing of the Leipzig Fair of the past year affords ample proof of the efficacy of the anti-Nazi boycott.”
