Title

Letter from Carrie Chapman Catt to "Friend of Human Justice." June 1933.

Description

In 1933, Carrie Chapman Catt began protesting against the Nazi persecution of Jews. This letter, sent in June, and signed by Catt with a personal note, encouraged readers to gather signatures on an official protest statement. In August 1933, Catt announced the establishment of the Protest Committee of Non-Jewish Women Against the Persecution of Jews in Germany. Over 9,000 women had signed the committee’s official protest statement, which was disseminated internationally and to the League of Nations. In recognition of her efforts, Eleanor Roosevelt presented Catt with the American Hebrew Medal in November of the same year.
