Jewish Meat Dealers Elbowed out of Place

Download PDF for this date

A numerus clausus or racial quota governing the admission of Jewish cattle-dealers to the cattle-markets of Frankfurt-am-Main as well as in the entire Main region was adopted today at the meeting of the organization of cattle-dealers of the region. It was announced at the meeting that 28 Aryan live-stock dealers had formed a special corporation whose members would replace all Jewish traders who “must vacate their places for Aryans.”

Similarly, fifty Aryan wholesale meat-dealers have organized themselves into a united front and announced that they will not permit Jews to do business in the meat-market. Since schechita (ritual slaughter) is prohibited anyway, they declared, Jews are eliminated from the meat business.

At a meeting of the Hamburg Association of Grain Dealers, the Nazi president, Hartwig, announced that, no difficulties would be made for Jewish grain-dcalers in the Hamburg region.

The Jewish shoe store, Oko, at Rottweil-on-Neckar, was closed by the police and its owner taken into custody after crowds had gathered in front of the shop in an angry demonstration at a low-price clearance sale in the store.
