No Intervention Brooked in Anti-jewish Fight Says Minister of Justice

The Reich’s Minister of Justice Frank assured a meeting of the lawyers’ association here last night that he would treat the Jewish question loyally within the framework of the laws intended to exterminate “foreign race” influence, but would not permit excesses or brutality.

“The National Socialists are anti-Semites, but not barbarians,” he told the assembled lawyers.

Addressing a meeting of newly-admitted barristers, in the presence of foreign diplomats, Dr. Frank announced the “unwearying” removal of the “foreign race” from collaboration in legislation through interpretation through having members in the courts which have jurisdiction.

The conduct of the anti-Jewish fight, Dr. Frank asserted, would be “in accordance with the cultural height of the German people. In this connection,” he warned, “let none intervene. “We will debate our principles with no one in the world.”
