$125.00

Dedicated to her mother, Mrs. Snowden begins her book of post-World War I memories with a mention of her twelve years campaign as an agitator for women’s suffrage. Her first chapter begins with the Second International in 1919 and covers the League of Nations Conference in Geneva, with an additional chapter dedicated to the Conference of Women held at Zurich in June 1919, giving a loving description of Jane Addams, one of forty American women to attend. Chapter 9 is titled, “Concerning the Jews.” She made a remarkably prescient statement: “Russia and Poland are popularly conceived to be the pivot and centre of what is called the Jewish problem in Europe. The outrageous anti-Jewish propaganda which is being conducted all over the world is a disgrace to our modern civilization.”
