England Slept While Jews Were Massacred, Chief Rabbi Charges

Download PDF for this date

Declaring England was asleep, and the League of Nations failed to utter a protest, during the massacre of Jews in the Ukraine, Chief Rabbi Hertz compared last night the Ukrainian pogroms to the massacres of Armenians.

The Chief Rabbi’s remarks were made in the course of a speech at a meeting here to protest the Soviet persecution of religion. The meeting was addressed also by Captain MaoCullaugh, an American newspaper correspondent, Dean Inge and Moneignor Howlett.
