February 3, 1960
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

A resolution expressing “horror” at the re-appearance in London and elsewhere of Nazi and anti-Semitic activity was adopted unanimously yesterday by the London County Council. The Council expressed confidence that the people of London “will combat and totally reject this evil.”

The General Council of the British Trade Union Congress expressed today its “abhorrence and grave disquiet” over the recent outbreaks of anti-Semitism and neo-Nazism in a number of countries, including Britain. The General Council said that the re-appearance of swastikas “could not but remind everyone that nazism organized the murder of millions of Jews.”

Six swastikas and the words “Juden Raus” written twice were found painted today on the front of the Cambridge University Pitt Club. The foot-high swastikas were painted in bright green. Police indicated that the culprits were students.
