Citizenship Limited to Nazis, Labor Front Members, Confirming Jewish Fears

Download PDF for this date

Citizenship rights in the new German state will be given only to members of the Nazi party and the Labor Front, an official press communique stated yesterday. This confirmed the earlier fear felt by German Jews that they were in danger of losing their citizenship, since they have been expelled from the Labor Front and naturally cannot be Nazis.

The communique emphasized that non-members of the Labor Front will not be tolerated as German citizens.
