Mrs. Arthur Brin of Minneapolis, president of the National Council of Jewish Women, spoke on “The World Conscience and Anti-Semitism” yesterday afternoon as a feature of the “Women’s Radio Review” over Station WEAF.

Referring to the atrocities of the German government, Mrs. Brin remarked: “We can only realize the tragedy when we think of it in terms of little children.” She cited the enforcement of the study of a new racial science in the schools, where the inferiority of the Jew is brutally and contemptuously stressed, as a cause for much of the suicide among the Jewish students.

“A generation of children and youth so indoctrinated can only me## that persecution will persist,” she said. “This is not merely a Jewish problem. It is not a question of a single race or religion. It is a question of Christianity and civilization itself.”
