Lord Snell Speaks on Zionism and Anti-semitism Today

Download PDF for this date

Lord Harry Snell, former Under Secretary of State for India, and author of the minority report of the Shaw Commission, who is now on a visit to this country, will deliver a lecture this morning at the Brooklyn Academy of Music on “Zionism and the Revival of Anti-Semites.”

Lord Snell, who is a member of the British Labor Party, was sent to Palestine, after the Arab riots of 1929, as a member of the Shaw Commission to investigate the occurrences on the scene. He objected to the findings of the Commission, which were severely criticized when published, and wrote a minority report, evincing sympathy and understanding of the Jewish position in Palestine.
