Brothers & sisters of Hitler's soap

Members of the Soviet Jewish Anti-Fascist Committee Solomon Mikhoels (left) and Itzik Feffer pictured
on their 1943 trip to Britain, with (I think) Archbishop "six million Jews" Garbett and some choirboys.

"brothers and sisters of a people that Hitler is determined to convert into commercial soap"

Is how Soviet-Jewish actor and chairman of the JAFC addressed his Jewish audience (probably in Yiddish as he spoke no English) during a radio broadcast on his summer 1943 fund raising tour of North America and Britain.
