Anti-jewish Acts of Hitlerist Regime in Thuringia Being Done Away with

Download PDF for this date

The various anti-Jewish acts of the Thuringian Government during the time of the Hitlerist ascendancy are all to be done away with by the new Government, in spite of the fierce opposition put up by the Hitlerist Deputies.

To-day Dr. Witzmann, the spokesman of the People’s Party, which was in alliance with the Hitlerists in the Coalition Government in which the Hitlerist, Dr. Frick, held the dual office of Minister of the Interior and of Education, and whose withdrawal from the Coalition led to the over throw of the Hitlerist regime, declared in the Thuringian Diet amid vehement interruption from the Hitlerist side, that the People’s Party will vote for the motion introduced into the Diet by the Social Democratic Party that the antisemitic prayers recited in the Thuringian schools by Dr. Frick’s order should be removed from the school curriculum.

The Peole’s Party also disapproves, he said, of Dr. Frick’s appointment of Dr. Guenther to the totally unnecessary Chair of “Raceology” at Jena University.

The Communist fraction has introduced a motion calling for Dr. Frick’s arrest, so that he should be put on trial to answer for all the harm that has been done to the country as a result of the decrees which he issued during his period of office.
