Jews who are German citizens must give the Hitler salute with ##raised arm and cry “Heil Hitler” when in public buildings ## when dealing with public officials, the Nazi government ordered today. However, the order stated, the Hitler salute will not be demanded of the Jews in their personal and private lives.

“The Jew who is a German citizen enjoys German protection and hence he must, at least in public, give and receive the Hitler salute,” the order explained.
