Nazi Press is Advised Sir John Simon Not Jew

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

Sir John Simon, British Foreign Minister, and distinguished English lawyer, has been formally and officially cleared of the charge of being a Jew by the government of the Third Reich. The Nazi authorities have also been kind enough to establish a racial lineage for Sir John.

According to an official order issued to the German press: “References which have been cropping up from time to time that the British Foreign Minister, Sir John Simon, is a Jew, must stop. Simon is no Jew. Furthermore, he is descended from an old Welsh line.”
