  • When published out of London in September of 1937, Cecil Roth pleaded with his reader to believe this was a true history and not a work of satire based upon current conditions The word Aryan had risen to the surface in certain sectors persecution was in the air and, while satire may not have been the order of his day, Mr Roth was most assuredly launching this labor toward warning of things to come One can tell by the tone of the writing its insistence, its outrage, its occasional florid turn of [...]
