Quotation from Yitzhak Gruenbaum “Let them say that I am anti-Semitic” — Jan. 18 1943

Chairman of the Rescue Committee of the Jewish Agency during World War II, addressing the Zionist Executive Committee in response to Rabbi Ishe Meir Levin d'Agudat Yisrael.

Author : Thematics :
" Let them say that I am anti-Semitic....Let them say what they want. I will not demand that the Jewish Agency allocate of a sum of 300,000 or 100,000 pounds sterling to help European Jewry. And I think that whoever demands such things is performing an anti-Zionist act. "
