Peoples Temple Collection; Box 13, Virtual Item 4 -  Q314, News and commentary (November 13, 1978)
November 13, 1978

This tape was one of 53 tapes initially witheld from disclosure.

Four days before the arrival of Rep. Leo Ryan – and five days before the deaths in Jonestown – Jim Jones reads the news to the Jonestown community.

He begins with an account of an incident in Weimar Germany, when members of the fledgling Nazi Party threatened and then beat an opponent. For people who think it couldn’t happen in America, he adds, consider what is going on in Westchester County, New York, “where race riots are now taking place.”

Full summary of the recording available at Alternative Considerations of Jonestown website, along with the tape transcript.
