Courdert, powerful international law attorney, on America's initiative in helping to rebuild post-war Europe, in part: "...There is also the fact that Europe has no realization of the necessity to meet certain primary questions on her responsibility, and before this realization comes to the people of Europe, they will probably need to go deeper into the ditch than they are now...When Europe has realized that America cannot be called upon for sacrifice until they, who are infinitely more interested than we are, have made their sacrifice, then I hope it will be possible to secure support at this end..."
