Download PDF for this date

The process of ##minating Jewish doctors from the State and Municipal Panel system is continuing, it was reported today at the annual meeting of the Association of Jewish Doctors held here.

Speakers at the meeting empha-###ed that all efforts to improve the position of young Jewish doctors have been of no avail. No positions have been open to Jews in Panel institutions. Not only have no new appointments been made, but Jews have even been refused the opportunity to register for vacancies.

Seven Jewish doctors and forty assistants will be dismissed in October from the Franz Josef Hospital here, it was disclosed at the meeting.
