Reveals Von Schleicher Opposed Anti-semitism

That Gen. Kurt von Schleicher, former Reich’s chancellor who was slain in the Hitler “purging,” opposed the Nazis’ anti-Jewish policy, is disclosed today by Sir Walter Layton in the London News-Chronicle.

Sir Walter refers to a dinner he had with Gen. von Schleicher following Julius Streicher’s anti-Jewish boycott day on April 1, 1933, during which Schleicher frankly revealed his democratic sympathies for the principles of liberty, to which, he stated, the nation must adhere if it wished to develop its full capacities.
