“...after the experience of 44 years of military occupation and all the conflict and friction, I think it will be in the best interests of the two peoples to be separated first.”In all honesty, this doesn't surprise me at all. Don't forget that the world was silent and complacent as the Nazis began their systematic Holocaust of European Jews. They went step by step, very slowly to check if anyone would protest. But each step was met with silence and tacit approval from international diplomats, media, academics and other countries.
The Nazis based their policy on the pseudo-scientific Nazi Nuremberg Laws:
1935 Chart from Nazi Germany used to explain the Nuremberg Laws. The Nuremberg Laws of 1935 employed a pseudo-scientific basis for racial discrimination against Jews. People with four German grandparents (white circles) were of "German blood," while people were classified as Jews if they were descended from three or more Jewish grandparents (black circles in top row right). Having one or more Jewish grandparents made someone a Mischling (of mixed blood). The Nazis used the religious observance of a person's grandparents to determine their race.
Please don't forget that the war against the Nazis, aka World War Two was not fought to save the Jews. It was to "roll back" the Nazis from western Europe and to prevent them from conquering Britain. The Jews who survived were just lucky. The allied forces that entered the concentration camps weren't prepared in any way to rescue the starving inmates. That's why/how they inadvertently killed many by overfeeding them in the early days of victory. They didn't have medical instructions on how to safely feed people who had been on starvation regimes for months and years.
I can never forget all this. To survive, we Jews must remember that we can only rely on G-d and Jewish Laws.
