[ 9 May 1933 ]

On 9 May 1933, a near full page article in the Daily Express, written by the pro-Empire Eton educated Gilbert Frankau, carried the headline ‘As a Jew I’m Not against Hitler.’ It attempted to categorize the German Jewish community into two groups – ‘good’ nationalist Jews and ‘bad’ Bolshevik Jews.  Although Frankau did not approve of persecution of German Jews with ‘an honourable war service,’ he fully supported Hitler’s drive against the ‘many’ Communist Jews in Germany. ‘She does not need,’ he commented, ‘and in my opinion is absolutely right to boot out, the international, Bolshevistic, Communistic Jew.  Such Jews are perils to every country they inhabit.’
