La question juive et sa solution - The Jewish Question and Its Solution, by Monteux Frédéric - important publication against the danger of Nazism and the actual implementation of Nazi racial theory towards the Jews, an early cry from a French activist before the implementation of the “Final Solution” shortly before the outbreak World War II. Paris, 1939 - first edition.

Shortly before the outbreak of World War II, Frédéric Monteux warns against the danger of implementing Nazi racial theory in the most dangerous way towards the Jewish people. He expresses the harsh reality of German Jewry as it manifested itself weeks before the publication of the book: “It is as if all the suffering, all the torture suffered by the small Jewish people over hundreds of years are concentrated to a peak by the brown shirted men” (the Nazi SA). Monteux noticed how racial theory, which many in the world related to as theoretical science that would not come to practical expression, was becoming more and more practical day by day: “The more National Socialism succeeds in staying in power, the more bestial its methods become”. He discerned how the Nazi definition of the Jew as an "inferior race" was slowly turning him into a "parasitic germ" to be destroyed. “There is no lie, no matter how crude, that they do not tell about the Jews”, he writes. The book is in fact the last call to the nations of the world to wake up and fight Nazi Germany and the Nazi lie of racial theory, because as the author correctly discerned, its practical implementation by the Nazis was closer than ever. He describes the magnificent history of the Jewish people, explains the manipulations used by ancient anti-Semitic propagandists, shows the difference between the ancient anti-Semitism that was religiously based and modern anti-Semitism that is racially based, and elaborates in several chapters to explain the absurdity of Nazi racial theory and how dangerous it is, repeatedly warning of the worst imaginable that could happen to the Jewish people if nations do not wake up to fight the Nazi lie.
In addition, he quotes protest voices around the world that rose up against the persecution of Jews - such as the call of Soviet intellectuals at a meeting held in Moscow on behalf of "Civilized humanity" who raised their voices against the barbaric acts committed against Jews in Nazi Germany, as well as the conference attended by German intellectuals who fled Germany to Paris where they expressed their protest against the waves of violence sweeping Germany - and especially what happened during Kristallnacht, he quotes a declaration published by Heinrich Mann against the persecution of Jews, and more.
