Found in the fantastic Letters of Note book, which also gave us 20-year-old Hunter S. Thompson’s remarkably brilliant advice on life:

On November 18, 1938, as news of the devastating looting and destruction of Germany’s Jewish homes, businesses and synagogues spread around the world, 36 prominent American writers – including John Steinbeck, Lillian Hellman, and Dorothy Parker – sent a strongly worded telegram to President Roosevelt urging him to cut all ties with Nazi Germany.

Letters of Note is a must-read.
