This chapter studies British writers' inherited racialist traditions, revealing that some writers during the war were forced to choose other jobs when they started writing sympathetic novels for Jews and gypsies. It then looks at stereotyping, using Jews as the main characters in children's stories, the different depictions of Jews, and racial hostility. The chapter identifies the most notable allusion to Jews, which can be found in a fictional work composed during the war: J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings.
