Girls, Firms Friendly to Jews Are Warned of Reprisals by Nazis

Download PDF for this date

A public warning was issued today by the Lawyers Association of Hesse, to all firms employing Jewish lawyers and even to firms employing Jewish war veterans, that this was contrary to the national spirit.

The warning published in the Hessische Volkswacht, declared: “Firms which do not understand this will realize it fully when their cases come up in the courts. Then they will learn why it pays to be represented by Aryan lawyers.”

The same paper is publishing lists of Christian girls who are still keeping company with Jews and alleges that a large number of Christian girls still prefer to spend their time with Jews, in cinemas and at week ends at seashore resorts.

The Volkswacht revealed that when such girls are caught by the Nazi storm troopers, they are registered and their names published in newspaper blacklists.

The student association of Erlanger University has issued a manifesto urging all German students to join Julius Streicher, fanatic anti-Semite and editor of the notorious paper, Der Stuermer, in his fight against the Jews, declaring, “the Jews are the deadly enemies of the German race.”

The manifesto also declared that nothing is more shameful than the spectacle of Aryan girls associating with Jews. It urged the girl students to stay away from Jews, threatening them with being blacklisted. The manifesto concluded by demanding the expulsion of all Jewish students from Erlanger University.
