Race Relations Report in Britain Cites Successful Integration of European Jews

Download PDF for this date

A report on British race relations just published here cites the successful integration of Jewish immigrants from Eastern Europe despite attempts by racist elements to make them a scapegoat for national ills.

The report, sponsored by the Institute of Race Relations, deals primarily with colored immigrants. It was prepared by E.J. B. Rose and a group of collaborators and published by Oxford University Press. On Jewish immigration into Britain it said; “In two generations from the arrival of the (Jewish) refugees, from Eastern Europe, a form of accommodation had been reached; and this despite the depression and open and explicit attempt to harness anti-Semitism as a scapegoating device for the economic misfortunes of the country to provide the motive power for a native Fascist movement on the European model.”
