Leading French Newspaper Doubts German Charges Against Deutsch

Le Monde, the influential French newspaper, charged yesterday that the arrest of Dr. Hans Deutsch in Bonn was “a maneuver to discredit him and spoil his reputation. ” Among his clients in compensation claims was the Rothschild family.

“Too many important personalities, ” stated Le Monde, “had intimate contacts with Dr. Deutsch, thus demonstrating his reputation for honesty and thus making it impossible to accept his arrest without objection. “

Le Monde stated that, among personalities who had close contacts with Prof. Deutsch were leaders of the Austrian Government, and prominent cultural and educational leaders in France and Switzerland. “German justice, ” declared Le Monde, “is not above suspicion. We are entitled to express anxiety over the further developments in this case.”
