Nazi Lawyers Demonstrate

Download PDF for this date

Hundreds of Nazis gathered outside the Frankfurt courts in a hostile demonstration yesterday demanding that no Jewish lawyers be allowed to practice there, but storm troops, it was officially stated, restored order. The Nazi Commissar of Justice, Frank, addressing a meeting of Nazi lawyers, held in the Prussian Diet building, declared, to the accompaniment of stormy applause, that the Nazis would not abate in their demands until all Jewish attorneys without exception have been dismissed from all branches of the law.

In spite of an official government announcement inviting foreign students to attend German universities and declaring they could study there unmolested, Jewish students as well as foreigners have been provided with red admission cards while German students received white cards.
