“A policy of inaction can be as vicious and destructive as any of Hitler’s well-laid plans”
Description                           Estimate: $1,000+          

ALS signed “Bill,” one page on both sides of a 4.25 x 3.5 Supreme Court card, May 22, 1947. Letter to Barnet Nover of the Washington Post, in full: “That was another magnificent piece you wrote the other day—on the D.Ps of Europe. It’s the best statement and analysis of the problem I have seen. What we forget is that policy of inaction can be as vicious and destructive as any of Hitler’s well-laid plans. Our innocence can do great damage.” A paperclip impression to the top and a few creases, otherwise fine condition. Accompanied by the original mailing envelope, addressed in Douglas’s hand, as well as a photocopy of Nover’s column entitled ‘Human Challenge: The United States and the DP’s,’ as referenced in the letter. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
