Reich Marriage Subsidies Can’t Be Spent in Jews’ Shops, Nazi Ministry Rules

Jewish merchants should not benefit even indirectly by the government subsidy granted newly-married couples, the Reich Ministry of Finance indicated today. The ministry issued an order forbidding newlyweds from buying any of their household effects from stores controlled by Jews.

Another blow was struck at Jewish merchants in Western Bavaria, when Nazi officials in Gollhofen and Oberichelsheim issued decrees prohibiting farmers and peasants from having any business relations with non-Aryans. Anybody flouting this order. the Hitlerites declared, would be officially classified as a traitor.
