A page from a 1920 issue of CURRENT OPINION MAGAZINE described the assorted anti-Semitic crimes committed against the Jews of Northern Europe since the end of the First World War:
"One of the most sinister results of the war has been a new wave of anti-Semitic in Europe. Recent dispatches from Berlin describe street demonstrations against Jews and speak of "a veritable pogrom atmosphere" in Munich and Budapest. In Poland, Jewish blood has flown freely, amid scenes of horror described by Herman Bernstein and other writers in American newspapers. In Ukrainia the number of Jews massacred during the early part of the present year is estimated anywhere from 40,000 to 100,000."
