Sterilization of Jews Proposed in Magazine As Purge for Disease

Sterilization of German Jews was proposed today in an article discussing eugenic legislation published in the Rostock University magazine.

The article claimed that it has been proved Jews mostly suffer from hereditary diseases, and predicted that the Third Reich will shortly pass a new law preventing the spreading of diseases by means of sterilization. At the end of the article it was admitted—with regrets—that this would not offer a complete solution to the Jewish problem.
