Download PDF for this date

Jews will not be permitted to participate in the All-German Industrial Exhibition, scheduled to open on the New Year as the largest fair of its kind ever to be held in the nation. According to an announcement published in the Berliner Boersenkurier, Field Marshall von Hindenburg, president of the German Republic, and Minister of Propaganda Goebbels, are the patrons.

According to the newspaper special efforts are being made to “show the world what German labor can do with German materials.” A special race section is planned at the exhibition but details aren’t available.

A resolution was adopted at a recent convention of the All-German Association of Grocers, Fruiterers and Vegetable Dealers barring purchases from Jewish dealers.
