U.S. Agent of German Group Attacks American Jewish Congress

October 22, 1952
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

An attack on the American Jewish Congress was made here by Harold Keith Thompson, Jr., registered agent in this country of the neo-Nazi Socialist Reich Party of West Germany. Mr. Thompson said that the American Jewish Congress was one of several groups that were “actually agencies of a foreign state, the State of Israel,” and should be compelled to register as agents of a foreign principal.

Mr. Thompson denied a recent charge that the Socialist Reich Party was a neo-Nazi group. At the same time, he demanded the immediate release and restoration of the property and rights of 1,045 Germans imprisoned as war criminals. Such an act, he said, would be in the best interests of the United States.
