Any “ransom” plan for the rescue of German Jewry was emphatically rejected today in an address by Neville Laski, president of the Board of Deputies of British Jews, at a meeting under the auspices of the Baldwin Fund for Refugees. “I say without any equivocation,” Mr. Laski declared, “that Jews are not prepared to buy the bodies of our people at the price of sacrificing civilization to a beast.”
