London Paper Warns of “dangerous Influences” at Work in Germany

The London Daily Mail, in a full-page report on anti-Semitism in Germany, concluded that hooliganism aside, there is growing uneasiness, self-criticism and heart searchings in government circles that the moral rehabilitation program has still not affected a small, hard-core of entirely unrepentent Nazis within Germany; that the vigilance of the courts in pursuing as such cases of anti-Semitism that have come before them is not entirely above suspicion; and that an underground route exists by which war criminals and rabid anti-Semites awaiting trial have succeeded in reaching Cairo from Germany.

The newspaper reported that “dangerous influences are at work” in Germany. It described them as incorrigible Nazis working from a base in the United Arab Republic, and Communist agent provocateurs believed behind recent acts of anti-Semitism such as the daubing of swastikas on the Duesseldorf synagogue.
