"Deliver those who are being taken away to death, and those who are staggering to slaughter, O hold them back!
If you say, 'See, we did not know this'
Does He not consider it who weighs the hearts? And does He not know it who keeps your soul?
And will He not render to man according to his work?"

1933
ALBERT EINSTEIN makes the declaration stating –  
   "A striving for knowledge for its own sake, a love of justice bordering on fanaticism and a striving for personal independence – these are the elements of the tradition of the Jewish people which have always made me consider my membership of it as a gift of fate.
Those who today fulminate against the ideals of reason and individual freedom and try to impose by methods of brutal violence a mindless state slavery, are right to see in us their irreconcilable foes. The struggle history has given us to fight is a hard one; but so long as we remain the devoted servants of truth, justice and freedom, we will not only continue to survive as the oldest of earth's living peoples, but also carry on by our productive work the creation of values that contribute to the nobility of the human race." (emphasis mine).

the United States Consul General George S. MESSERSMITH (1930-1934) writes in a despatch to the State Department (four days after Reich Chancellor Kurt von Schleicher had been dismissed just weeks after his election and replaced by Adolf Hitler) –
"The political situation now is so complicated and is subject to so many psychological factors that it is impossible to make any definite forecast. It may, I believe, be accepted that whether the Hitler regime lasts for a few months or for a longer period, it is only a phase [?] in the development towards more stable political conditions and that this government will be followed by one which will show greater elements of stability than any which Germany has had for some years. The people are politically tired."

Stephenson/Stanger (later Sir) patented a system for transmitting photographic images via wireless that produced 100,000 pounds sterling per annum in royalties for the 18-year run of the patent (circa $12 million per annum adjusted for inflation in 2010). In addition to his patent royalties, Stephenson swiftly diversified into several lucrative industries: radio manufacturing; aircraft manufacturing; Pressed Steel Company that manufactured car bodies for the British motor industry; construction and cement as well as Shepperton Studios and Earls Court. Stephenson had a broad base of industrial contacts in Europe, Britain and North America as well as a large group of contacts in the international film industry.

For this reason he never drew a salary for his intelligence work for Britain.
