The Week

May 1943
New Republic;5/10/43, Vol. 108 Issue 19, p619
This article presents the author's perspective on news for the week of May 10, 1943. He reports on Allied progress against Nazi forces in North Africa, but warns the campaign is far from done and promises to be long and bloody. However, he urges America and Great Britain to grant Jewish refugees, who are fleeing German persecution, asylum. He is also critical of U.S. Congressman John Costello's specious campaign against draft dodgers.
