On June 5, 1940, Harry M. Warner, one of four brothers who founded the Warner Bros. Studios, addressed 6,000 studio employees and their wives. Warner, outspoken in his support for religious freedoms, made a strong plea that America should not stand idly by while totalitarian ideologies took hold in Europe, and creeped into this country. "As I see it, we have a very simple problem here and that is: United we survive and divided we fall. We must unite and quit listening to anybody discussing whether you or I am a Jew or a Catholic or a Protestant or of any other faith—and not allow anyone to say anything against anybody’s faith—or we will fall just the same as they did over there, because we are confronted with the greatest organized machine, subversive or otherwise, that the world has ever had." 9 x 6 in.
