Aryan Clause is Invoked Against Jewish Foreigners

Download PDF for this date

For the first time since the Nazi regime began enforcement of the so-called Aryan clause, it was made to apply today to Jews with citizenship in other countries who are residing in Germany, when Dr. Robert Ley, head of the Nazi Labor Front, issued an order declaring that only non-Jewish foreigners would be permitted employment and membership in the Labor Front, which includes all labor organizations.

The railways administration tonight officially ordered the immediate dismissal of all Jewish employees, employees of Jewish origin and employees married to Jews.
