‘non-aryan’ Teachers Hit by New Rule

Download PDF for this date

The dismissal of all “Aryan” teachers and principals who married “non-Aryans” after July 2, 1933, was ordered today by the Nazi Minister of Education Rust.

The new order calls for the dismissal of those teachers who are married to any “non-Aryans” even though the latter may have served in the German army and have seen duty at the front in the last war.

With this new order the Minister of Education aims to remove any possibilities of “contaminating” the minds of the “Aryan” youngsters in the schools through even the remotest contact with “non-Aryans.”

Addressing a church conference in Kassel, Reichsbishop Mueller told his listeners that every German must realize the importance of keping German blood untainted, and therefore all “non-Aryans” must be extirpated in Germany.

Jews being the enemies of Christ and Christendom, he said, they are therefore also the enemies of every German, and consequently every German must feel it a personal duty to have nothing whatsoever to do with the Jews.
