Henry, Ford Challenged
To Renounce Nazis
New York (JPS)—-Henry Ford, motor-car manufacturer who
has dabbled in anti-Semitism in the past and then publicly repudi
ated it, is called upon to renounce the Nazis who continue to make
widespread use of his scurrilous anti-Semitic material in a pam
phlet issued here by the Friends of Democracy.
Robert E. Sherwood, playwright
who has been known to prepare
material for some of the Presi
dent’s addresses, contributes the
challenging prefatory statement
which appeals to Ford’s “patriot
ism and better judgment.”
Henry Ford is asked to “choose”
between the Nazis and America.
He “must know that he is being
used by Fascist groups all over
the world,” the pamphlet charges.
Sherwood calls on Ford to do
these things to prove his sincerity:
“(1) Stop the further publication
and circulation of pamphlets and
books containing copies of extracts
from the Dearborn Independent
articles A list of the dissemina
tors of the publications is given
and includes the American Nat
ionalist Confederation, St- Albans,
W. Va., the Aryan Book Store,
Los Angeles, various South Amer
ican, French and German concerns
and also the Britons’ Publishing
Society in London;
“2) Stop the further publication
and circulation of pamphlets and
books quoting Mr. Ford’s endorse
ment of ‘The Protocols of the
Elders of Zion’ or quoting other
anti-Semitic statements of Mr.
Ford which presumably no longer
represent Mr. Ford’s true beliefs;
(3) Mr. Ford must make periodic
statement* to the press, giving
the fullest publicity to the action
the propaganda offensive against
Russia had begun a new emphasis
on the anti-Jewish note. Bolshe
vism was pictured by the Goebbels
press as a tool of the Jews seek
ing world domination.
A war film exhibited by the
Germans in Berlin to a group of
foreign press correspondents
showed many scenes of the hound
ing of Jews by the Nazi forces
invading Russian territory. The
captions of the film indicate a
spirit of gloating over the Jewish
suffering, one of them readmg.
“Jews at last being overtaken by
their just fate.”
that he is taking; (4) Proceed
immediately to disassociate himself
absolutely from W. J. Cameron;
(5) After Mr. Ford has taken the
steps outlined above, let him pros
ecute for libel anyone who states
he is anti-Semitic.”
Refugee Artist Contributes
To American Culture
NEW YORK —How the National
Refugee Service helps talented for

Nazis Admit Execution
Os Jews in Bialystok
STOCKHOLM, (JTA) —The Berlin radio in a broad
cast admitted the mass-execution of Jews in Bialystok and
the burning of synagagues there immediately after the
occupation of that city by German troops.
It was learned here today also
that the Nazi authorities in oc
cupied Poland issued an order to
all Jewish doctors and medical
students to report at once to Ger
man military quarters for assign

officers wounded on the Russian

Jews Must Show
Zionist Flags
London (JPS) —Zionist flags
must adorn every house occupied
by Jews in Lemberg, Bialystock,
Brest Litovsk and other cities now
in Nazi hands, so that the Nazis
may know where to find the Jews
when they want them for their
purposes. All Jews must also
wear yeliow badges.

Describing the starvation which .
he observed among the Jews in
the ghetto, the correspondent
states that the German official
who took him around the ghetto
explained to him sarcastically
that the ghetto is not being sup
plied with sufficient food “because
the Jews are on a slimming
diet.” The correspondent describes
general conditions of life in the
ghetto as utterly miserable. “There
are no parks, no gardens, no
playgrounds in all of the ghetto
territory. Everything is bought
and sold there on the street pave
ments. Even drinking water is
sold. A glass of water costs ten

ent states in his report.
