MINISTER WARNS AGAINST ‘INTERFERENCE’ IN NAZI GERMANY’S INTERNAL AFFAIRS

[ 29 March 1933 ]

On Thursday 29 March 1933, Lord Hailsham, speaking in the House of Lords as Secretary of State for War,  argued that any official representation made on behalf of Jews in Nazi Germany would be ‘an unwarrantable interference,’ declaring ‘I think it would be only right that I should say at once that the British government do not think they can claim to have any special right to intervene with regard to German subjects who are of the Jewish race.’1
