Dodd Defends Jews in Washington Address

“A race 4,000 years old has a claim to sufficient land for a house,” William E. Dodd, former Ambassador to Germany, declared last night, defending the Jews in an address to the Washington Town Hall meeting.

Declaring the “Aryan” theory built on misconception, Dr. Dodd said Jewish blood in Germany was “the only wicked blood there is,” according to the German race doctrine, despite the fact that half of the Germans were descended from non-Germans.
