Title

Board Meeting, [15] June 20, 1977, Citizens' Comments: Ed Fleischman

Abstract

Ed Fleischman, former Village Trustee, speaks during the Citizens Comments portion of the meeting. Fleischman was formerly the state commander of the Jewish War Veterans and he and his group violently confronted George Rockwell in front of the Stevens Hotel (in Chicago).

He states that, "In the event that our legal processes do not keep them out... we must recognize that the objective of these people in coming here is to get publicity." He subscribes to the policy of giving the neo-Nazis the "silent treatment," which will demonstrate their impotence.
