Congressman Celler’s Move Stirs German Press

December 10, 1923
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The German press has been profoundly stirred by the recent statement of Congressman Emanuel Celler of New York that he was staying his hand from introducing a resolution in Congress appropriating $25,000,000. for the relief of the German people because of the persecutions of Jews of Germany.

Still unaware apparently that the Jewish Congressman has, following upon this warning, introduced the resolution, the Democratic newspapers were quick to draw the moral that the Nationalist agitation is costly to the entire German people.

The outspoken anti-Semitic newspapers have suppressed the report, while the Bavarian KURIER of Munich, the organ of Bishop Faulhaber, declares such methods on the part of American Jews cannot harm the anti-Semitic movement, but on the contrary strengthon it.
