Sterilization Threat Chiefly Against Jews

Download PDF for this date

It was learned here today from reliable sources that while Jews are not specifically mentioned in the new sterilization law passed in Germany, the Nazis intend to apply the law particularly against Jews, not only adults but also youths, and especially young Jewish boys and girls. The Nazis believe that Jewish parents would emigrate rather than submit to sterilization for themselves and particularly their children.

By this means, holding this terrible threat over the head of German Jewry, the Hitlerites believe they will thus succeed in forcing all Jews to flee the country.
