WHERE HOPE LIES by Leo W. Schwarz


Email this review


World anti-Semitism, a lucid, interesting presentation of the problem, amply demonstrated by specific instance in illustration. There is no attempt to probe into the psychological and theological myriad ramifications of anti-Semitism, but rather an attempt to show how and where it exists, how it operates, what are its basic causes. Today's Jewish problem rises from a residue of animmosity left over from the past, but as developed in the totalitarian states, it is something quite different. The Jews were a convenient scapegoat, a means of hitting out at democracy -- anti-Semitism paid in dollars and cents. Schwarz analyzes the ingredients, the political and economic expediency, and urges for America complete unity, with no minority discrimination.
