Reich Groups Plan Further Curb on Jews

Download PDF for this date

The German Central Retail Organization and the employees union of the retail trade today jointly addressed a memorandum to Minister of Economics Dr. Kurt Schmitt asking him to introduce license cards for all retailers beginning July 1.

Jewish commercial circles are alarmed at the move, seeing in it the possibility of the introduction of further discriminations against Jews in trade.

Previous experience with the working of Nazi laws has shown that where power is placed in the hands of Nazi officials to decide upon qualifications for licenses the Jews invariably suffer.
