Jews in the 20th Century

Jewish Americans Boycotted German Products (Literary Digest, 1935)

Having suffered from a Jewish-lead boycott of German goods that had been in place for two years, the businessmen of Nazi Germany dispatched Dr. Julius Lippert (1895 1956) off to Washington in order soothe hurt feelings and bring an end to it all. Seeing that Lippert was a devoted anti-Semite and the whole dust-up commenced because of the widespread anti-Semitic sensations that made up the very core of Hitler's Germany were still in place and not likely to subside any time soon, Washington functionaries probably yawned and informed him that there was nothing that could be done on the Federal level.


Polish Jews Face Dismal Future (Literary Digest, 1937)

"The old-style pogroms which made the life of Polish Jews a nightmare under the Czars have died out, yet the terror of Antisemitism still haunts their three million men, women and children, one-tenth of the country's population."

"Now they are a race apart, isolated, according to Sholem Asch (1880- 1957), a Yiddish writer who recently visited the country, like lepers. Young women in the Warsaw Ghetto look like dried skeletons, he says. Rickety children save scraps of bread from their free school lunches to feed their parents at night."


Israel's Alarm at Hitler's Rise (Literary Digest, 1933)

This is an article that gathered Jewish opinions about the rise of Nazi Germany from many parts of the globe:

"There have been European Premiers before this who were surrounded with an anti-Semite atmosphere, but never has such a Jew-baiter as Hitler sat at the helm of the Ship-of-State among Modern civilized people."

"This bitter climax is the reward given to the Jews of Germany who poured out their blood for the 'Fatherland' during the Great War. Not less than 100,000 Jews took part in the war, which was more than a sixth of the Jewish population of the country including women and children. Twelve thousand fell on the battlefields, and thousands returned home crippled."


Jew - Gentile Relations 1922 (Literary Digest, 1922)

This article appeared at a time when Eastern European immigration levels had been drastically curtailed, Klan membership was at it's peak, antisemitism in college admissions had been exposed, and the memory Leo Frank's murder was in it's seventh year. The article is about the chasm between the two groups and building the necessary bridges; Dr. Stephen S. Wise (1874 - 1949), columnist Walter Lippmann (1889 - 1974) and a cadre of others address the topic with the needed perspective. Dr. Wise remarked:

"Whatever Christians may have taught...their duty in the present is clear as are the heavens in the noon hour; the duty of affirming that incalculable and eternal is the debt of Christians to Israel, of whose gifts Jesus is treasured as the chiefest."


''Some of My Best Friends Are Jewish'' (Literary Digest, 1936)

"'Jews are like everybody else, only more so.'
So clicked the typewriter of the epigrammatic Dorthy Thompson (1893 - 1961), syndicated columnist and wife of Sinclair Lewis (1885 1951)'.

'Are they?' queried Robert Gessner (1913 - 1978), twenty-nine-year-old instructor of English at New York University. 'Then why are they so persecuted?'

'To answer his own question, the young Michigan-born Jew traveled to Europe, saw Hitler-swayed Jews march from meetings shouting 'Down with us! Down with Us! Less fantastic were his experiences in Poland, Palestine, the Soviet Union and England...'"


Eastern European Jews Slaughtered (Current Opinion, 1920)

"One of the most sinister results of the war has been a new wave of anti-Semitism 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."
