Reich Recalls Medico Fired As ‘non-aryan’

Download PDF for this date

Another victory was scored here today for the Jewish and partly Jewish officials dismissed from posts in Upper Silesia by the Nazi regime when the German government, without awaiting the verdict of the Upper Silesian Mixed Commission of the League of Nations, sitting here, informed Dr. M. Perl of Beuthen, Upper Silesia, that he could return to his post.

Dr. Perl, who is a Christian, although descended from Jews, was dismissed from his post as head of the hospital at Beuthen when the Nazis assumed power. His case, as well as that of a number of other Jews and descendants of Jews, was placed before the Mixed Commission as constituting direct violations of Germany’s agreement to protect minority groups in Upper Silesia. Apparently anticipating that Dr. Perl’s petition would be upheld, the German government assented to his return.

In every case that has so far come before the Mixed Commission the Nazi regime has been forced to make restitution to German Jews dismissed under the terms of the “Aryan clause.”
