Lord Tavistock Hits at Jewish Bankers

Download PDF for this date

The charge that “some Jews, especially American, have been international financiers of an anti-social type” is made by Lord Tavistock, leader of the British Peoples Party, in a letter to the Northamptonshire Evening Telegraph.

Lord Tavistock, who recently has repeatedly denied that his party was anti-Semitic, points out that “international finance is a very real and evil influence in the opinion of a great number of other people besides Lord Haw-Haw (British-accented Hamburg broadcaster.)” He admits, however, that it is “certainly unfair to identify it with international Jewry.”
