- Weizmann, Chaim (1874-1952) ( 24 quotations )
" I am afraid that we replace today the concept of rescue of Jews with that of redemption...When I consider if these men [German refugees] can fit in the style of life we are creating here...I should say sincerely: No...Zionism is eternal life, whereas the rescue of thousands of Jews is not for me but temporary lives. "
