KIRKUS REVIEW

With a forceful simplicity and clarity of thought and purpose, a well-known St. Louis Rabbi presents the anti-semitism of Nazi Germany from the angle of what sort of a boomerang it will prove to Germany. He discusses the effect of the sacrifice of a scapegoat on the sacrificers, of hate on the psychology of a people, of the inestimable loss to civilization, art, literature, science, of the loss in destruction not only of Judaism but Christianity in Germany, of the burden of guilt on a whole people, of the loss of ethical, intellectual and moral standards. It is a powerful indictment, dignified, challenging -- closing with a plea that the forces of Naziism and anti-liberalism here be faced and conquered in time. Call this to attention of your Jewish customers and of local Jewish leaders.
