Download PDF for this date

Latvian Nazis announced today that they will ask for a referendum to deprive Latvian Jews of the right to vote, to own property and to receive trade licenses. They also stated that they demanded the prohibition of marriages between Jews and Gentiles and of Christian doctors to treat Jewish patients.

The student association of the Latvian university, for the first time in the history of Latvia, demanded the introduction of a numerus clausus for Jewish students, that is, the number of Jewish students to be confined to their proportion in the population, and the prohibiting of Jewish students from using the corpses of Christians in dissection.
