- 28 pages. Pamphlet about Nazism, with an introductory note by Rubin Saltzman and forewords by Joseph Curran and Congressman Dickstein. Published by the Jewish-American Section of the I.W.O. Translated Summary: Rubin Saltzman advocates support for the Dickstein and Lynch bills then being debated in Congress. Samuel Dickstein, who represented the Lower East Side in Congress, is a controversial figure at best. The back advertises “New Currents, A New Jewish Monthly” whose slogan is “Forge Jewish Unity, Crush Anti-Semitism, Defeat the Axis Now.” Graphic shows a swastika being grabbed.
- Re: Congressman Dickstein, see info about NKVD activities and his committee whose legislation is backed by the CP / IWO as Nazi Hunting in the 1930s.
- The Jewish People’s Fraternal Order was the largest ‘national’ section of the International Workers Order (IWO) which focused on cultural awareness and celebration, mutual support especially in health insurance coverage, and anti-fascist activities. The IWO also gave particular emphasis to supporting the rights and interests of African Americans.
