Don’t Mourn Jews, Nazi Workers Told

When the Jewish employer of German workers dies, the employees may not express their sorrow, according to an order issued here today by the District Nazi Chief of Bavaria.

The order was sent to all heads of the Nazi Labor Front with a warning that violation would be punished by expulsion from the Labor Front, which is tantamount to condemnation to permanent unemployment.

The action was taken after a group of German workers in a local factory inserted in a newspaper a statement of condolence over the death of their Jewish employer.
