Interview with Fred Nauman
QUESTION 22
LOUIS MASSIAH:

Could you talk to us about the incident about the anti-Semitic leaflet. What was that about? When did, what happened?

FRED NAUMAN:

Ah, well actually there was more than one, but, ah, the, the one that I think got the most publicity was one written by, ah.

LOUIS MASSIAH:

And if you could rephrase the question a little.

FRED NAUMAN:

The leaflet, ah, the anti-Semitic leaflets, ah, mostly came from an individual who, ah, ah, I think was making this a particular cause, ah, and this leaflet appeared in the letter boxes of teachers and I'm not sure at this point whether it was in all the schools or in just some of the schools, but it was obviously distributed with some help and it was, ah, I don't remember the specifics but it was, ah, an anti-Semitic leaflet that got wide circulation, ah, and, ah, made the anti-Semitic situation worse than I thought it was. I did not, at any time, even after this, see this as very much of an anti-Semitic, ah, problem. It was a Black, White problem clearly. Ah, and the anti-semitism, I felt, was over, overdrawn.
