Jews - The First Nazi Foe
While we have been damned by many vicious foes and
pseudo-friends, it will be discovered one day that we, the
Jews, fought in the front line trenches in the battle for civ
ilization before most of the world knew that such a battle
existed.
Certainly, now, the line of bat- $
tie has been clearly drawn. Back i
in 1933 the Nazis branded the Jews
a subhuman race. Now they so
term all the world, except the
Nazis.
So long as the Nazis called only
Jews subhuman, and prospective
slaves, the other peoples—the peo
ples who make up ali our democ
racy of the United States—could
view the struggle from without, i
They could see it as a spectator .
from the grandstand. It is true j
that they hoped the underdog
would win. It is true that their ;
instinct for humanity was stirred.
But they didn’t climb out of the
grandstand and throw their
weight, except morally, at the :
beasts who have defiled civiliza
tion. j
Now they will pour out of the
grandstand, hot with rage as a 1
volcano is hot with lava, because (
it is plain that to Nazis the Jews (
were only the first target, and ’
that after this target was riddled
the world would have to produce
many, many more.
Now there is an awakening— 1
sleep has been jolted out of the
eyes of the slow—and this awak
ening you may credit to the man
who is President of the United
States.
We all. all of us. saw Poland go.

appeared into the abyss Denmark,
Norway, Belgium, The Nether
lands, Rumania, and France. In
these nations there was set up
the creed of Hitler —that there is
but one God, and he is Hitler, and
that there is but one group of An
gels, and they are the Nazis. _
Seven years ago, in Germany,
if you said you were born a Jew
it was the same as saying that
you were born a slave. But now,
in Germany, you are bom a slave
if you were born a Dane, Norwe
gian, Belgium, Dutchman, Pole,
Rumanian, or Frenchman.
If they have their way, how soon
will it be to be born a slave if you
are an Englishman—an American ?
No matter what your religion.
This is no time for me to shout:
“I told you so.” We, who were in
the front line trenches, have been
decimated. But when the world
casts its final reckoning, when the
world reviews this first half of
the twentieth century, the world
will find that we fought the good
fight not alone for ourselves. And
out of the welter of blood, and
broken bones, and starvation there
will come a new respect for our
people.
We know Hitler. For a long time
we alone Icnew the side of Hitler
that he hid from the rest of the
world. And when we shouted that
a pestilence was among us, we
were war-mongers and spreaders
of fear.
We were told that we were
doomed to become slaves because
we were Jews. W T e said we were
condemned not because we were
Jews but because the Nazis hated
all free peoples. We said that to
stir religion against religion was
a basic principle, and that we were
only the first targets. Now we
know who was right.
The real struggle is the one
ahead. So long as Democracy ex
ists anywhere it exists every
where. So long as Americans are
free of Hitler, there will be peo
ples in every nation who in their
hopes and dreams are free of Hit
ler.
There can be nothing more ir
reconcilable than the difference
between the United States of
America and the Third Reich. We
don’t have to go over all that
ground again. Anyone who listens
to the radio or reads newspapers
knows what those differences are.
Hitler knows, better than we,
that no spark of freedom must re
main aglow, lest it set flaming the
whole dead, dry, mechanical world
of which he dreams.
There may be a place in the
world for both of us—but one of
us must be underground.

In an accompanying statement,
Henry Monsky, president of B’nai
B’rith, declared that “our elected
leaders must be given assurance
that back of them stands a united
people of free men and women who
are determined to remain free and
who count no sacrifice too dear
and no service too great to pre
serve the American way.” Em
phasizing that the “security of
the nation is a paramount and su
preme responsibility that rests
equally upon all who are privi
leged to call themselves Ameri
cans,” Mr. Monsky said, “in what
ever way we may be able to serve,
serve we must, for service to the
country in this hour is an unpre
cedented opportunity for patriot
ism in action.”
