A file of documents relating to anti-Semitism in the United Kingdom. Subjects covered in the file include the printing and distribution of anti-Semitic propaganda in Hendon, London; fears of a breach of peace due to the number of Jews living in the area and the involvement of a Nazi-sympathising former internee; the distribution of anti-Semitic pamphlets at the "The Evil We Fight" exhibition in Bristol; and the distribution of anti-Semitic propaganda from the British National Party across the country. Other subjects discussed include criticism by the Board of Deputies of British Jews of anti-Semitism in the press, due to undue emphasis on the Jewish identity of offenders such as black-market profiteers and absentees. Documents in the file include a radio broadcast from Colonel Theodore Roosevelt aimed at fighting anti-Semitism in the United States.
