Martin H. Glynn
American Hebrew 31 oktober 1919

Martin Henry Glynn, född 1871 i New York, död 1924 i New York. Amerikansk politiker (Demokraterna) med irländsk bakgrund. Guvernör i New York från oktober 1913 till december 1914.

Den 31 oktober 1919 publicerades en artikel i den judiska tidskriften The American Hebrew, författad av Glynn. Artikeln, som bär namnet The Crucifiction of Jews Must Stop!, talar om att sex miljoner judar hotas till livet i Europa. Artikeln anger inte exakt var i Europa dessa judar hotas till livet, men författaren menar att det rör sig om en Holocaust.

The Crucifiction of Jews Must Stop!

"From across the sea six million men and women call to us for help, and eight hundred thousand little children cry for bread. These children, these men and women are our fellow-members of the human family, with the same claim on life as we, the same susceptibility to the winter's cold, the same propensity to death before the fangs of hunger. Within them reside the illimitable possibilities for the advancement of the human race as naturally would reside in six million human beings. We may not be their keepers but we ought to be their helpers.

In the face of death, in the throes of starvation there is no place for mental distinctions of creed, no place for physical differentiations of race. In this catastrophe, when six million human beings are being whirled toward the grave by a cruel and relentless fate, only the most idealistic promptings of human nature should sway the heart and move the hand. Six million men and women are dying from lack of the necessaries of life; eight hundred thousand children cry for bread. And this fate is upon them through no fault of their own, through no transgression of the laws of God or man; but through the awful tyranny of war and a bigoted lust for Jewish blood.

In this threatened holocaust of human life, forgotten are the niceties of philosophical distinction, forgotten are the differences of historical interpretation; and the determination to help the helpless, to shelter the homeless, to clothe the naked and to feed the hungry becomes a religion at whose altar men of every race can worship and women of every creed can kneel.''


And so in the spirit that turned the poor widow's votive offering of copper into silver, and the silver into gold when placed upon God's altar, the people of this country are called upon to sanctify their money by giving $35,000,000 in the name of the humanity of Moses to six million famished men and women. Six million men and women are dying -- eight hundred thousand little children are crying for bread."
