A photograph of a crowd of Jewish protestors and sympathisers meeting in Hyde Park, London, taken by Tomlin for the Daily Herald newspaper on 2 April, 1933. This man is speaking to a crowd gathered to protest against the rising tide of anti-semitism in Nazi Germany. The large hammer and sickle in the background is carried by a group of Communist supporters. By 1933 the Nazis were directing a campaign of organised violence against Jews, their synagogues, businesses and property. This photograph has been selected from the Daily Herald Archive, a collection of over three million photographs. The archive holds work of international, national and local importance by both staff and agency photographers.
