- Story Text: A torchlight procession and rally was organised in Tel Aviv Israel, Jan. 23, in protest against international anti-Semitic incidents. Led by Nazi concentration camp victims and wartime ghetto fighters, hundreds of people joined the demonstration.
Ex-soldiers of the Jewish Brigade and British Legion marched side-by-side with youth groups. Conspicuous was a former Auschwitz camp inmate wearing the striped prison uniform.
Banners carried by the demonstrators declared: We shall not forget the 6,000,000. This referred to the number of Jews killed under the Nazi regime.
Mrs. Zvia Loubotkin, a leader of the famous Warsaw Ghetto resistance, addressed the large crowd. Other speakers protested against 'the revival of Nazism' and the sale of arms to Germany.
In London, Jan 24, at the World Jewish Congress, Dr. M.L.Perlzweig, Congress United Nations delegate, alleged that anti-Semitism was a disease of 'Christian Democracy'. Political Director of the Congress, Mr. A.L. Easterman said acts of anti-Semitism could not be ascribed to ebullient young hooligans "anxious to have a laugh".
Dr. Nahum Goldmann, Congress President, rejected the theory that all incidents were instigated by communists, although it was possible some were communist-inspired.
