On the demand of Göring the German Jewish leaders go the London to stop the stop the anti-German boycott. The group was lead by Martin Rosenbluth, and also included Richard Lichtheim, and Ludwing Tietz.

Once in the Zionist headquarters they along with other British Zionist’s mad a phone call to rabbi Wise in the United States to get him to stop the Madison Square Garden protest which he declined to do.

When the group did what Göring asked they met with German ambassador Leopold von Hoesch who asked them to confront Rufus Isaacs the Lord of Reading. Isaacs was going to resign in protest of the Third Reich treatment of Jews, but Hitler did not want the bad press. The group was able to get Isaacs to delay his resignation by two weeks, but he still vented his frustrations in parliament a few hours later.
Of these the most influential is what is called "education." Religion plays a part, though a diminishing one; the press, the cinema, and the radio play an increasing part. What is essential in mass psychology is the art of persuasion. If you compare a speech of Hitler's with a speech of Edmund Burke, you will see what strides have been made in the art since the eighteenth century. What went wrong formerly was that people had read in books that man is a rational animal, and framed their arguments on this hypothesis. We now know that limelight and a brass band do more to persuade than can be done by the most elegant train of syllogisms. It may be hoped that in time anybody will be able to persuade anybody of anything if the can catch the patient young and is provided by the State with money and equipment.
