Shechita Prohibition is Illegal in Czecho-slovakia: Government Circular Instructing Municipalities P

Following intervention made to the Government by the Federation of Jewish Communities against the prohibition of Shechita in a number of towns in the German parts of Bohemia, including Mies, Trautenau, and Aussig, the Government has issued a circular to all municipalities pointing out that the prohibition of Shechita is illegal, because it deprives the members of one of the religious communities recognised by the State of the facilities granted them in the Constitution for the free exercise of their religion. All prohibitions of Shechita are automatically repealed by this Government instruction.
