Thuringian Jewry Protests Anti-semitic Regime of Province

Download PDF for this date

An imposing demonstration by representatives of all Thuringian Jewry took place yesterday in Eisenach. Brune Weil, the chief speaker, and delegates from all parts of this German state condemned the anti-Semitic Frick regime which rules in Thuringia today and which has passed an anti-schechita law and is planning other discriminations against Jews.

The present-day anti-Semitic spirit that pervades Frick and his adherents, declared the speakers, is a violation of the old liberal spirit of Thuringia as it expressed itself in the utterances of Goethe at Weimar. A resolution was adopted calling upon the Reich government to assure the constitutional rights of Thuringian Jewry.
