Not only Jewish actors, but also Jewish directors, producers, cameramen, authors and conductors are to be dismissed from the German film industry, it was officially announced yesterday. In the future, anyone desiring a post in the industry will have to present his birth certificate, his father’s and his grandfather’s, in order to prove freedom from the Jewish taint.
