German Jews Undergo Vast Change of Opinion As Regards Palestine

One of the most striking changes that has taken place recently in the viewpoint of German Jewry toward Jewish questions is to be found in the attitude toward Palestine, writes Der Morgen editorially, commenting on the results of Nazi rule.

Formerly the German Jew regarded Palestine as a place suitable only for the “unfortunate eastern Jew,” and one entirely unfit for the German Jew, who thought that next to Germany no country could ever win his affection. The last year has completely changed Jewish opinion on the matter.

‘Palestine is now no longer thought of as merely a Jewish spiritual center, but German Jewry is looking to it as the most advisable place in which to take up their existence, as the only hope of German Jews for the future,” the paper states.
