Author : Thematics :
" Hitler, more than he hurt the Jewish people, whom he knew and detested, hurt the Jewish State, whose coming he did not foresee. He destroyed the substance, the main and essential building force of the Jewish state. The state arose and did not find the nation which had waited for it. "
