Prominent Canadians Receive Anti-semitic Material Mailed in United States

April 24, 1964
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Reproductions of a May 1934 issue of Julius Stretcher’s notoriously anti-Semitic “Der Stuermer, ” published in Nazi Germany and devoted exclusively to the myth of Jewish ritual murder, have been received through the mail by a number of prominent Canadians, including members of Parliament and leaders of political life in Toronto.

The reproductions, which were sent from return addresses in Birmingham, Ala., contain the headline in German across the front page, “The Jews Are Our Misfortune,” and its contents are strewn with reproductions of medieval woodcuts depicting Jews committing various diabolical and murderous acts. David Stanley, a 19-year-old Toronto hate peddler, is believed to be in Birmingham now.
