Interview with Fred Nauman
QUESTION 24
LOUIS MASSIAH:

OK, could you talk again about the incident of the anti-Semitic leaflet that was stuck in people's boxes and how much of anti-semitism might have been part of what was going on in Ocean Hill-Brownsville?

FRED NAUMAN:

Ah, there was obviously a Black-White confrontation but the, ah, fact that many of the teachers are, or all those who were fired were Jewish, I think was incidental. Ah, the, ah, thing that brought it really to a fore was, ah, one or a number of leaflets that were produced by someone, ah, who was not in the district at all, but, ah.
