Arthur Greenwood

AZL flag holder Transparent Arthur Greenwood (8 February 1880 – 9 June 1954) was a British politician and a prominent member of the Labour Party from the 1920s. In 1940, he was instrumental in resolving that Britain would continue to fight in World War II despite Germany’s many attempts to negotiate peace. In fact without the vote in favour of fighting on by Greenwood and Clement Attlee, Churchill would not have had the slim majority he needed to do so. Also in 1930 as member of the War cabinet Greenwood publicly pledged a “new world order” to international Jewry. He announced that once Germany was defeated, Jews everywhere would be given an opportunity to make a “distinctive and constructive contribution in the rebuilding of the world.”
