Jewish Morale in the Present Situation

By Morris D. Waldman

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Service, September 1937

The author, writing in 1937, analyzes the position of Jews in Germany. He states that the appointment of Adolf Hitler to Chancellor of Germany in January 1933 reinforced the bleak outlook of the Jewish community. Throughout history, he says, the Jews have sought for integration into greater society but have been met with hostility resulting in further segregation. Though the morale is low, he urges members of the Jewish community to place their faith in the substantial values of civilization and submit to the restraints of civilized people.
