Car manufacturer Henry Ford’s weekly paper, the Dearborn, Michigan Independent begins publishing a series of nearly 100 articles entitled “The International Jew.” The series includes reprints of the Russian anti-Semitic forgery, The Protocols of the Elders of Zion. Jewish Americans respond by boycotting Ford Motors. In 1927, under heavy pressure, Ford publicly apologizes for having published anti-Semitic propaganda in his newspaper. Louis Marshall, head of the American Jewish Committee, drafts Ford’s apology.
