How Jews Are Treated in Britain and on the Continent: “daily Express” Draws a Lesson

February 17, 1932
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

To-day we begin the publication of Mr. Louis Golding’s great novel of Jew and Gentile life, “Magnolia Street”, the “Daily Express” writes in an editorial to-day.

To-day also comes the news, it proceeds, of a violent cutbreak of antisemitism in Bucharest University. On the Continent, the “Express” says, the Jews apparently will never cease to be regarded as a problem and a menace. In Britain they are accepted as a distinctive but not an alien part of the common body of citizenship. Mr. Golding vividly portrays the surface clashes, the economic rivalries, and the spiritual apartness of Jew and Gentile in an English town. But he also brings out, it adds, how they merge and co-operate in the presence of a national or a human crisis.
