The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMENT & ANALYSIS -

As a pupil at Har­row School 1943– 1947, first let me say that the vast ma­jor­ity of pupils were very de­cent types and I had many friends. How­ever I can per­son­ally at­test to the fact that among cer­tain masters and pupils an­tisemitism was rife ( Let­ters, May 9). As a suc­cess­ful young sports­man in Har­row foot­ball, I clearly re­mem­ber a mas­ter shout­ing, “knock the Jew boy off the ball”.

De­spite high achieve­ments on the cricket field, my pro­mo­tion was clearly not wel­comed by the rel­e­vant school au­thor­i­ties. Cyril Wick Hamp­stead Hill Gar­dens, Lon­don NW3
