Reich Protests Anti-semitic Prayers in Thuringian Schools

Download PDF for this date

A protest on behalf of the Reich government against the anti-Semitic prayers recently introduced into the schools of Thuringia as infringing the German constitution and violating the religious freedom of German citizens has been forwarded to the Thuringian ministry of state by Dr. Albrecht Wirth, German minister of interior.

Dr. Wirth wrote to the Thuringian ministry of state in connection with the recent demand of the National Socialists in Thuringia that unless members of their party were appointed police directors they would create a government crisis. It was also the National Socialist minister of education, Dr. Frick, who introduced the anti-Semitic prayers.
