Montefiore Urges World to Meet Nazi Defi to Mankind

Download PDF for this date

An appeal to humanity to meet “the Nazi challenge to mankind” was voiced by Leonard G. Montefiore, president of the Anglo-Jewish Association, at a meeting of the association yesterday.

Referring to the resignation letter of James G. McDonald, High Commissioner for German Refugees, Mr. Montefiore declared that the German Jews, helpless, gagged and unable to defend themselves, must submit “to people like Georg Kareaski, who fawn on their own persecutors.”

Kareski, a German State Zionist leader, was recently appointed by the Nazis to head the Jewish cultural union, which exercises dictatorial power over Jewish cultural affairs.
