Third Booklet on Nazi Persecution is Issued

Download PDF for this date

A third booklet on the persecution of the Jews in Germany was issued here today by the British Board of Jewish Deputies. It contains the latest facts published in the British press regarding the treatment of the Jews by the Nazis.

In a foreword to the publication, Neville Laski, Leonard Montefiore and Leonard Stein point out that persecution of the Jews in Germany has been conducted without any connection with the Government’s political opposition. The Jews, it is asserted, are persecuted as Jews, a fact which is perceived in the laws expressly discriminating against the Jewish race. The persecution is particularly intense, it is stated, of the educated Jewish classes, such as university instructors, civil servants, lawyers and doctors.
