The Encyclopaedia (6,000,000) Judaica




Between 1902 to 1926, the Encyclopaedia Britannica was spinning a yarn about 6,000,000
"systematically degraded" Jews. In its 10th, 11th and 13th editions, at least.




In the 10th Edition of the Britannica, first published in
1902, under its article on "Anti-Semitism" it states:
Though anti-Semitism has been unmasked and discredited, it is to be feared that its history is not yet at an end. While there are in Russia and Rumania six millions of Jews who are being systematically degraded, and who periodically overflow the western frontier, there must continue to be a Jewish question in Europe; and while there are weak governments, and ignorant and superstitious elements in the enfranchized classes of the countries affected, that question will seek to play a part in politics.
Encyclopaedia Britannica, 10th Edition, Vol. 25. Adam & Charles Black Ltd, London. 1902. p.482.





In the 11th Edition of the Britannica, first published in 
1911, under its article on "Anti-Semitism" it states:
Though anti-Semitism has been unmasked and discredited, it is to be feared that its history is not yet at an end. While there remain in Russia and Rumania over six millions of Jews who are being systematically degraded, and who periodically overflow the western frontier, there must continue to be a Jewish question in Europe; and while there are weak governments, and ignorant and superstitious elements in the enfranchized classes of the countries affected, that question will seek to play a part in politics.
Encyclopaedia Britannica, 11th Edition, Vol. 2.  Encyclopaedia Britannica Company. 1911. p.145.





In the 13th Edition of the Britannica, first published in
1926, under its article on "Anti-Semitism" it states:
Though anti-Semitism has been unmasked and discredited, it is to be feared that its history is not yet at an end. While there remain in Russia and Rumania over six millions of Jews who are being systematically degraded, and who periodically overflow the western frontier, there must continue to be a Jewish question in Europe; and while there are weak governments, and ignorant and superstitious elements in the enfranchized classes of the countries affected, that question will seek to play a part in politics.
Encyclopaedia Britannica, 13th Edition, Vol. 1. Encyclopaedia Britannica Company. 1926. p.145.




DISCLAIMER:

"The 10th edition was only a supplement to the 9th, just as
the 12th and 13th editions were supplements to the 11th."



In 1964 Harvey Einbinder published his apparently devastating "Myth of the Encyclopaedia Britannica." It showed beyond argument ... that 666 articles in the 1963 edition were reprinted from editions dating back to 1875 in some cases; that American influence on its editorial policy had become dominant.
