From the Leo Baeck Institute’s Helen Ollendorff Curth Collection ([AR 25004]).
Excerpt from the above June 1933 letter:
"I doubt whether I can really give you authentic information on the German-Jewish doctor question. I happen to know, because I have a married sister in Cork, that the Irish Free State is willing to allow them to re-study and take the exams there provided they can certify the possession of at least…(say about $2,500). On the other hand, Germany has backed water regarding the Upper Silesia question and maybe, as a result of the Bernheim petition at the League of Nations, Jewish doctors thrown out may be compelled to be reinstated once more. Though my personal opinion is, that the Jewish people are finished for all time as regards a future in Germany."
