Minister Annuls Police Order Calling on Inn Keepers to State Nationality Outside Their Doors

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

The police department today ordered all owners of inns and restaurants to display outside their establishments licenses bearing the names of proprietors and their nationalities.

The measure is seen as an attempt to introduce anti-Semitic discrimination inasmuch as ninety percent of the inns and restaurants are owned by Jews.

The Jewish innkeepers made representations to the Minister of Interior who had the police order annulled.
