7,200 Jews Lose Citizenship in Southern Westphalia

Seventy-two hundred German Jewish citizens, originally East Europeans, have been deprived of their citizenship in Southern Westphalia alone, an official government announcement from Arnsberg declared today.

The official announcement also declared that within two years, citizenship rights will be withdrawn from 13,000 individuals and their families, who, according to the announcement, are “considered undesirable citizens from the Nazi viewpoint, especially racial and cultural.”
