Nazi Race Theories “unscientific,” Prof. Huxley Tells British Doctors

German Nazi theories of race are anti-scientific, Prof. Julian S. Huxley, grandson of Thomas Huxley and famous in his own right as an expert on social biology, said today in a speech before the British Medical Association here, the Havas News Agency reported.

Political and pseudo-scientific usage of race terms is unjustified, he declared, adding that the very notion of race can only be defined generally.

“The quantitative application of anti-scientific laws in distinguishing between Jews, half-Jews and quarter-Jews is entirely unscientific, he pointed out.

The idea that man has evolved by separation into distinct isolated units is incorrect. Cross-breeding has taken place for tens of thousands of years since human migrations began, the noted scientist declared.
