“Germany is doing the most foolish thing possible,” declared Professor Ellsworth Huntington, Yale University anthropologist, in a lecture before 500 school teachers. “The Jews driven out of the country average higher intelligence than the Germans that remain there.

To that extent she is weakening herself.”
