The so-called 'Protocols of the Elders of Zion, ' now the basis of a public trial in Switzerland, have been exposed beyond question by Benjamin Segel, a German scholar who, knowing with all sensible men that these writings have been only a smoke-screen for rabid anti-Semitism and political reaction, spent years investigating the sources and methods of the lying, Jew-baiting authors. An English translation of Segel's work by Dr. Sascha Czaczkes-Charles, an Austrian scholar now in America, will soon he issued by the Bloch Publishing Co. , New York under the title: 'The Protocols of the Elders of Zion: The Greatest Lie in History.' Segel exposes the forgeries of the various authors and translators of these spurious documents; he discloses the inconsistencies and plagiaries of their compilers; he points out the vagueness of their presumed 'authorities'; he uncovers the true origin of these charges which were first applied in 1865 by Maurice Joly, a French-man, against Napoleon III and had no reference whatsoever to the Jews. This book is irrefutable proof of the falsity of the greatest and most damnable forgery in human history. ” (Jewish Post, Vol X.
