Noted Britons Urge Nations to United Stand Against Persecution of Jews

Download PDF for this date

A group of prominent Britons today condemned Nazi persecution of Jews as a “systematic attempt to root out and destroy members of the most gifted of human races.”

A letter to the Times, signed by the Bishop of Chichester, Lord Lytton, Capt. Victor Cazalet and others, declares the persecution “has become a case for the conscience of all holding christian doctrine and human personality sacred.” The letter concludes with an appeal for Great Britain to join the United States and other civilized nations in “challenging what is otherwise a degrading reproach to our humanity and Christianity alike.”
