Oxford Club Due to Withdraw Invitation to German Neo-nazi Leader

January 19, 1967
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

An invitation to Adolf von Thadden, deputy leader of the National Democratic Party, to speak before the Oxford University Liberal Club was expected to be withdrawn following protests by Jewish students and the withdrawal from the program of Liberal Party leaders who had previously agreed to appear. Richard Moore, a Liberal M.P., said he did not “wish to be a party to a meeting which will give this man television publicity in Germany as I am sure such a meeting at Oxford would furnish.”

(In Paris, the French Committee of Resistance, composed of representatives of 47 wartime anti-Nazi groups, petitioned the Ministry of the Interior to bar von Thadden from making any speeches in France.)
