German university professor, author of the essay "The German-Jewish Parnassus" (1912) which sparked debate about intolerance and Jewish influence on German life.
|We can easily reduce our detractors to absurdity and show them their hostility is groundless. But what does this prove? That their hatred is real. When every slander has been rebutted, every misconception cleared up, every false opinion about us overcome, intolerance itself will remain finally irrefutable.|
