Cardinal Michael von Faulhaber of Munich writes a letter to the World Jewish Congress protesting their use of an alleged anti-racist sermon of his. Earlier this year a Social-Democratic newspaper in Prague published the sermon and the National-Zeitung in Basel reprinted excerpts, but in fact he never wrote any such sermon.

Cardinal Faulhaber complains about the "use of his name by a conference demanding the commercial boycott of Germany, that is, economic war" and "in his Advent sermons of the previous year has defended the Old Testament of the Children of Israel, but not taken a position with regard to the Jewish question of today."
