British Education System Held Partly Responsible for Anti-semitism

Download PDF for this date

Faults in the British system of education are partly responsible for the fact that prejudice against Jews still exists in Britain, Anthony Greenwood, vice-chairman of the Labor Party, declared here last night. He was the principal speaker at a meeting here of the Glasgow branch of the World Jewish Congress.

Much of the anti-Semitism and prejudice now existent in this country, said the Labor Party leader, is “due also to sheer thoughtlessness on the part of many people, who fall into popular expressions without realizing how wounding these could be.” Another cause, he declared, is the “muddled approach” to the core of Christian religion and the manner in which the Crucifixion is related.
