Reiteration of Czechoslovakia’s support of Zionism was expressed by Milan Hodza, Czech Premier, in an interview with the local newspaper, Chwila. Premier Hodza was quoted:

“In Czechoslovakia we know no Jewish question, for in Czechoslovakia Jews enjoy fullest rights. We know no difference between Jew and non-Jew.

“Our attitude toward Zionism has always been the same. We are entirely favorable to it, and I told that to Deputy Dr. (Angelo) Goldstein in the Czech Parliament. We regard support of Zionism as not only a matter affecting the honor of the Czechoslovakian republic, but also as a matter of justice.”
