Anti-jewish Excesses Spur Discontent in Reich, Diplomat Reports

Discontent in Germany has been increased by anti-Jewish excesses, Hugh S. Gibson, former Ambassador to Belgium and dean of the American diplomatic corps, who has just returned from Europe, told a luncheon of the Overseas Press Club of America.

“Discontent in Germany has also been increased by the anti-Jewish excesses,” Gibson said. “They were an awful blow to the German people not only because they were disgusted with them but they feared they would be held responsible for them abroad.”
