Subject: The Yellow Spot

I just came across a very interesting book for the first time:

_The Yellow Spot:  The Outlawing of Half a Million Beings.  A 
	Collection of Facts and Documents Relating to Three Years' 
	Persecution of German Jews, Derived Chiefly From National 
	Socialist Sources, Very Carefully Assembled by a Group of 
	Investigators.  With an Introduction by the Bishop of Durham_.  
	New York:  Knight Publications, 1936.  287 pp.

It consists of facsimiles, excerpts, and quotations from various 
German sources, and as one can see from the date, is a very early 

The [unnamed] editor was prophetic when he/she wrote:

	"Is it that the facts are not generally realised, or is 
	it that horrors are now so rife in the world that none is 
	terrible enough to shake us from our acquiescence?  No reader of 
	this book can any more escape the facts.  But unless they wake us 
	to fight against injustice, as a past generation was waked by the 
	voice of Zola, all that we know of civilisation will be in peril 
	of barbarous dissolution."  (p. 24)
