1,500 Jewish Physicians Expelled from Sick Funds in Berlin; 6,000 in Reich

More than 1,500 Jewish doctors have been expelled by the Berlin sick funds alone, up to July 1, while throughout Germany the number exceeds 6,000, a check here today revealed.

Dr. Wilhelm Frick, Nazi minister of the interior, at a meeting of editors of medical publications, today told them that he considers it the duty of every German doctor to be guided by race principles, because the question of pure German blood is also the question of a pure German race.

The doctors were addressed in a similar strain by Franz Seldte, Reich minister of labor, who declared that German doctors must eliminate everything foreign from the German medical system.
