Urge Aryan Lawyers Proclaim Their Race

Download PDF for this date

The Anwaltsblatt, official organ of the lawyers’ association, recommends to its Aryan membership that on their door-plates and letterheads they have the phrase “German lawyer” inscribed. It further urges that all Nazi lawyers also use the swastika watermark on their notepaper.

The Juristische Wochenschrift announced that it will accept contributions only from Aryans and will not review books written by non-Aryans, nor accept advertisements of legal and other types of books written by non-Aryans.

Commenting on this, the Frankfurter Zeitung emphasizes the important contributions of Jews to German law, which it says, it would be folly to ignore.
