Dr. Solomon Flink, professor of economics at Dana College, writes in the Courier, a New York publication, as follows:

Anti-Semitism may no longer be reflected in the barbarous butchering of individual Jews or in the brutal treatment meted out to the thousands of victims who still languish in concentration camps. Instead, it is now being inculcated subtly but most thoroughly, one feels almost tempted to say with typical German thoroughness, into the minds of the growing generation. An invisible, but nevertheless effective wall is gradually rising higher and higher around the Jewish population of Germany. Behind this wall the Jews are gradually being starved physically and morally. Locked out from further participation in German culture and many having become estranged from their traditional background, they are gradually drifting into a state of hopelessness.

But should we not desist from the boycott so that their burden may be eased as far as possible, exclaim the opponents to the boycott. To this challenge only one answer can be given: No.
