Report League Intervention Will Not Be Tolerated by Germany

Download PDF for this date

It was bluntly asserted in cabinet circles tonight that no intervention by the League of Nations in the matter of Germany’s treatment of Jews and other minorities will be tolerated.

Meanwhile, coinciding with publication in all countries except Germany of James G. McDonald’s resignation as League High Commissioner for Refugees, the German Government tonight published a 100-page analysis of the Nuremberg laws.

The chief aim of the analysis is to prove that the Jews are not a national but a racial minority and therefore national minority principles do not apply and the League of Nations has no basis for intervention on the grounds of protecting national minority rights.

The analysis is the work of two government experts, Dr. Bernhard Loesener and Government Councillor Dr. Friedrich Knost.
