Bar Jewish Artisans

Download PDF for this date

A resolution to expel all Jewish members from artisan shops and trade and commerce was passed yesterday by the Chamber of Artisans in Chemnitz. The resolution demanded that Jewish artisans be prohibited from employing Aryan apprentices and Jewish merchants Aryan salesmen. By this method the Nazis in Chemnitz eventually hope to bring Jewish activity to a standstill.
