Nazi Aggression Must Cease--Chamberlain
Security from future German aggression was termed the most important pre-requisite of any lasting peace by Professor John Chamberlain, Chairman of the Department of Economics, last night, at the initial session of the study unit of the Harvard Council for Post-War Problems.
Discussing the treatment of defeated enemy countries, Chamberlain declared that prevention of renewed Axis aggression was of more importance than punishment of the aggressors or the satisfaction of the just claims of other peoples.
He declared that, after the last war, the guilt of Germany had been regarded as only a myth of Allied propaganda and that the world would probably be subjected to similar "debunking" after the present conflict. Stories of German atrocities in both wars he regarded as not falsifications but understatements of the facts in many cases.
