Dorothy Thompson on Way to Berlin As Special Correspondent of the J. T. A.

Dorothy Thompson, author and newspaper correspondent, is on her way from Italy to Berlin to make a survey for the Jewish Telegraphic Agency of the situation in Germany. Miss Thompson, in private life Mrs. Sinclair Lewis, will keep the Agency informed in a series of exclusive cables and approximately six news letters on the latest developments in Hitler’s Germany.

Miss Thompson is not unknown in official and newspaper circles in Berlin. For four years (1924—28) she was there as chief of the Central European Service of the Curtis-Martin Newspapers, which she had represented abroad since 1920. Her first book, “The New Russia”, was written out of knowledge gained as a foreign correspondent and, recently, she published a book about Hitler, “I Saw Hitler”.

The first of her extensive articles will appear in the first enlarged Sunday edition of the Jewish Daily Bulletin, to appear April 23rd, under the editorship of Harry Salpeter.
