Thuringia Seeks to Establish Race of All Its Teachers

Download PDF for this date

The schools of Thuringia today received orders from the provincial minister of education to send photographs of all teachers in the system to headquarters. It is believed this action is part of a plan to check the race of all teachers, particularly those who have been converted to Christianity. These latter are just as objectionable to the National Socialists, who control the government of Thuringia, as Jews.
