Italian Jews Concerned by Action Against Protestant Church

October 7, 1952
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The Jewish Community and other religious minorities in Italy are deeply concerned by the Italian Government’s action in ordering the closing of the Churches of Christ, a Protestant sect, and are closely following developments in the case.

Minorities’ spokesmen expressed the hope that out of the discussion over this case would come a stricter application of the constitutional guarantees as opposed to the police laws of the fascist period still being applied to religious minorities here.
