THE JEWS IN GERMANY by Marvin Lowenthal


Email this review


An important background book for better understanding of the present deplorable condition in Germany. At least two thirds of the book are given over to a tragic picture of the Jew wandering through Germany for over 1600 years, demonstrating that history repeats itself so long as the emotions of fear and hatred dominate man's thinking. The book is full of cruel episodes, generation after generation -- a revelation of a people who have suffered with dignity and faith that the ""liberty of no individual can rise higher than its source, and this source the general liberty of man."" This is an integral part of the history of Germany, and leads up to the last third of the book with its dispassionate discussion of Nazi Germany, the battlefield that may determine the place of liberty for all mankind.
