Paul Scheffer

(1883 -1963)


US Reference to Scheffer:

The Minister in Switzerland (Wilson) to the Secretary of State, [Extracts], BERN, January 27, 1936.:

 “As to whether this manifestation of force in regard to Italy, together with the possibility of such a manifestation in respect to Germany will be effective in bringing Germany to a mood of negotiation is a question of psychological appreciation. Certainly Paul Scheffer of the Berliner Tageblatt, a believer in international co-operative action, makes no secret of his conviction that what he calls a threat of force will have results on Germany completely the opposite of what it is designed to effect. The overwhelming opinion of the representatives of other States here is, however, to the contrary and we can only hope that the future will show that they are right”.
