The Nazi persecution of the Jews is more than wrong, according to the “gloomy” Dean Inge. In a sermon at St. Paul’s Cathedral, Dean Inge said the recent doings of the Nazis are “stupid”. History, said the Dean, should have taught the Germans that it would be futile. “The Jews have stood by the graves of all their oppressors in turn.”

The sacred books of the Hebrews, said Dean Inge, “are the best sellers of the world.”
