The New Republic of this week carries a call from the Fellowship of Reconciliation urging the raising of an Armistice Fund for the victims of racial and religious persecution in Germany. The appeal says:
Armistice Day is proposed as a fitting time to make a collection for the tragic needs of those who are persecuted in the land against which we fought. The sacrifice of the war dead in their hope for democracy should challenge us to support today those who suffer in Germany for their fidelity to religion, democracy and peace.
At this hour there are within Germany thousands of persons who do not bow the knee to Baal. Wishing to stand by their country in its hour of trial, they cherish in their lives and hearts the ideals of freedom, justice and fellowship, without which civilization in Europe cannot endure. With them and their children rests the best hope for a new birth of better things in Germany when the present tyranny is overpast.
