Seek Ban Here on Distribution of Anti-semitic Nazi Weekly

October 12, 1956
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The American Jewish Congress has called upon the American News Company to stop its distribution in the United States of “Der Weg,” a German-language periodical published in Argentina and described by the Jewish organization as a “scurrilous” publication aimed at the reinstatement of world Nazism, whose “stock in trade is a violent anti-Semitism.”

The call to halt distribution was made in a letter to Henry Garfinkel, president of the American News Company, from Isaac Toubin, AJC executive director. The Jewish organization also noted that distribution of the periodical was continuing as late as October 1, despite the fact that the AJC had pointed out its nature to the distribution company last July.
