REBUKE TO NAZIS
To the Editor:
We are releasing
for publication Dr. Slochower's letter to the editors of the Who's Who
of German scholars, in the hope that other American scholars will take
the same step.
To the Editors of the
Dr. Gruyter Verlag
"Thank you for the
proofs of the Fifth Edition of the "Gelehrten-Kalender," in which you
again mention my name and work."
edition of your "Who's Who" of German Scholars is unfortunately
published under the aegis of Nazi-ism. As Hitlerism spells the death of
the spirit of scientific scholarship I must request that my name be
removed from this list."
"The time will come
when freedom of intellectual research, conducted for the common good,
will be possible in Germany. I should then be happy and honored to be
included once again in the "Gelehrten-Kalender." "
"(signed) Harry Slochower"
