WW2 Canadian brochure of speech 'The Jews in Europe' 1943
Broadcast speech by Watson Thomson, Director of Adult Education, University of Manitoba. Over Canadian Broadcasting Network on Easter Sunday 1943.
Passionate plea to take action. Ends with this:
God send us the grace so to do. We must act now, or face the awful accusation of these lines of verse written by a Jewish woman to a Christian friend:
There is something between us now:The cry you did not raise.
You have washed your hands again. Put down the pitcher, This water will flow between us.
Give me back Jesus; He is my brother. He will walk with me. Behind the gray ghetto wall Into the slaughter-house. I will lead him into the lethal chamber; He will lie down upon the poisoned stone; The little children pricked with the death-bubble Will come onto him.
Return to him the yellow badge. Give me back Jesus; He is not yours.
