The Chicago Foreign Language Press Survey was published in 1942 by the Chicago Public Library Omnibus Project of the Works Progress Administration of Illinois. The purpose of the project was to translate and classify selected news articles that appeared in the foreign language press from 1855 to 1938. The project consists of 120,000 typewritten pages translated from newspapers of 22 different foreign language communities of Chicago.

    The Jews and the Socialists (From the Cri du Peuple.)

    The following letter which I have received, affords me the opportunity to give the Socialist Party's definition of the Jewish race.

    Citizen Lafargue!

    First of all I congratulate you upon your acquittal; the blow you have dealt the money barons was excellent, but I am curious to know why the prefix Jew was never missing when you mentioned their names? This is not done with any other religious sect. My business brings me in contact with many Jews and I wonder why you attack this class of our citizens which has produced some of the best Socialists. This is unjust and not at all within the doctrine of Socialist brotherhood, therefore, I raise my voice in protest. Will you kindly make a brief explanation in the Cri du Peuple?

    2

    The unknown writer of this letter is right. The Jewish question requires a profound study. Attempts at Jew-baiting have been made in Europe for years. The German Jews have to fight a hard battle against envy and jealousy, spread by Philisters and the clergy.

    National hatred or race hatred is unknown to socialism; I personally have the greatest admiration for this persecuted people, who were always subdued and who always have been bearing a yoke. These same people try now, by the use of their money to throw off their long endured enslavement.

    The history of the Jews is one of the greatest dramas the world has known.

    The attack on Rothschild by the Socialists is based on the grounds that he is the representative of modern finances. They also know that the capitalists, no matter whether Jew, Catholic, Protestant, Free-thinker or Atheist, worship one God only, and that is the capital.

    And they also know, that their conscience can easily be bought. German Socialists count among their most excellent members many comrades of Jewish 3faith. Marx was a Jew, so was La Salle, Frankel, Bernstein, secretary of the Social Democrat; the Socialist Deputies Sabor, Kayser, and Singer are Jews, also. The Jewish race is endowed with intelligence, untiringness, faithfulness and ability.

    The Meeting of the Levinsohn Literary Circle

    The Levinsohn Literary Circle at its meeting in the Haymarket Building yesterday afternoon passed resolutions criticizing an interview in a newspaper alleged to have taken place with Rabbi Hirsch, in which the doctor was made to say that the Russian Jews of Chicago were anarchistic in their tendency and that there are in Chicago 50,000 Russian Jewish Anarchists.

    The society pronounced this statement as ridiculous, and was strong in emphasizing the fact that the Jews - and no less the Russian Jews - were as patriotic as any race in this country. Other statements in the interview of a like nature were also condemned and declared wrong.

  • The Occident -- March 21, 1890
    A Word to Radical Israelites

    Whatever may be implied with the term "radical" in so far as it relates to the Jewish cult, seems but an empty and meaningless word when applied to the present status of that class of men who advocate and desire to adhere to reforms and progress. Its most erudite Rabbis have not yet stepped out of all the old beaten ruts, though many of the heretofore accepted religious and formalistic notions, such as the "divine revelation theory," belief in a personal deity, circumcision, etc., are eschewed by them and that Sunday may be as good a day to rest and worship as Saturdays, were in their day, deep incisions to the orthodox Shulchan Aruch Jews. A greater and more decisive evolution seems to be impending for the intelligent Jewish masses, if the Ethical Culture Society shall not usurp the field for making itself a universal moral cult in which all religious bodies may be engulfed in the near future. There were those who had advanced the notion of transferring the traditional Jewish holidays to the nearest general days of rest, but the most radical of all were not willing to listen to this proposition. The intermarriage problem is deemed 2inexpedient even among our so called radicals and are only consummated by contracting parties outside of the Jewish congregation. The Occident has always inclined toward a consistent progress for the Jewish people and we move along with the current of philosophy and logic. The dogmatic religion must sooner or later be consigned to a dark past, while a moral and ethical training alone will suffice for the good citizen, no matter what country, birth or race he may spring from.
