Sign Barring Jews from Berlin’s Seaside Removed

The inscription prohibiting all Jews from bathing at the Wannsee resort near Berlin, was removed yesterday. An official communication explained that the prohibition had been issued without the “sanction of competent authority.”

Originally the order had been issued, the authorities claimed, when Aryan bathers complained that the swarming Jews offended the delicate sensibilities of Aryan bathers.
