זעקת יהודי אמריקה המרכזית
ב"טאג" הניו־יורקי נתפרסם מכתב זעקה מאת יהודי גוואטימאלה וסאן-סאלבאדור (אמריקה המרכזית).
במכתב מסופר, כי סוחרים יהודים אחדים גורשו משם על לא־עוול בכפם. אשמתם היחידה: יהדותם. אחד מהמגורשים הוא יו"ר ההסתדרות הציונית בגווטימאלה, הלשינו עליו שהוא קומוניסט, ובעטיה של מלשינות זו נרדף ונתרושש.
בסאן-סאלבאדור מרוכז המסחר בידי ערבים. ובמלחמתם נגד היהודים (60 במספר) אינם בוחלים בשום אמצעים. "הוכיחו" לממשלה כי כל היהודים קומוניסטים. יהודי אחד הומת ביריה, 12 נאסרו, ולאחר עינויים קשים גורשו מהארץ.
שולחי המכתב מבקשים לפרסמו ולעורר את דעת הקהל באמריקה, כי חייהם תלויים מנגד.


The cry of the Jews of Central America

A letter of outcry from the Jews of Guatemala and San Salvador (Central America) was published in the New York "Tog."

The letter states that several Jewish merchants were expelled for no wrongdoing. Their only fault: their Jewishness. One of the deportees is the chairman of the Zionist Organization in Guatemala. He has been accused of being a communist, and for the sake of thIs snitching he has been persecuted and impoverished.

In San Salvador, trade is concentrated in the hands of Arabs. And in their war against the Jews (60 in number) will stop at nothing. They "proved" to the government that all Jews are communists. One Jew was shot dead, 12 were arrested, and after severe torture were deported from the country.
The senders of the letter seek to publish it and arouse public opinion in America, because their lives hang in the balance [are in danger].
