Because “the most beautiful girl in Germany” is partly Jewish and hence a “non-Aryan,” the German Ambassador to London, Herr von Hoesch, has declined an invitation to join in the judging at Hastings to select “Miss Europe” from among the most beautiful girls of eighteen countries.

“Miss Germany” is Emma Kant, a grand-niece of the philosopher. She is partly Jewish.

“Because ‘Miss Germany’ is not a pure Aryan, I could not be present in an official capacity at Hastings,” von Hoesch declared.
