In response to the spread of organized anti-Semitism in the United States during the 1930s, leaders of Los Angeles' Jewish community formed a special defense organization known as the Los Angeles Jewish Community Committee. The committee later changed its name to the Jewish Federation Council of Greater Los Angeles, Community Relations Committee. The collection documents the committee's efforts to combat prejudice and educate the public through cooperation with both Jewish and non-Jewish groups, from its formation in 1933 through the early 1990s.
You can't do businiess with Hitler. This book was written by Rhodes Scholar Douglas Phillips Miller, featuring cover art by James Montgomery Flagg. The cover shows Uncle Sam with his sleeves rolled up and a burning swastika to the left. Uncle Sam holds his top hat in his right hand and wears his traditional red necktie and red and white striped pants. He appears to be running, accompanied by a dark horse that has a white blaze down its face. Behind him is the shadow of airplanes in the sky. Boston, 1941. Published both as a pamphlet (9.25 x 6 in.) and a book.
