Abstract

In an editorial notice of an article by Kretzner on the pathology of the Jew, the British Medical Journal makes the following astonishing quotation, apparently from Benedikt: "At the present day among orthodox Jews every female is condemned from nativity till the menopause to an uninterrupted series of pregnancies, parturitions and lactations." This is important if true. We have heard much of the remarkable qualities of the Jewish race, but its precocity has never so impressed us before. It is so common for us to see in British publications remarks on our own deficiencies in the use of the English language that we can not think they do not know how to use it over there at its source, or we would believe the editor of our contemporary had made a mistake.
