Reading Experience:

Evidence:
'In all seriousness he [Victor Gollancz] could flaunt a prophetic grandeur, or perhaps simply uncontrolled showmanship, which would have been comic in less traumatic contexts: for instance, in the title of his pamphlet on the Nazi brutality to Jews, apostrophising not only Hitler but all other rulers - "Let my People Go" - words befitting a Moses, not a Gollancz'.
