Download PDF for this date

A new German Citizenship Law which will formally and completely disenfranchise the Jews will be proclaimed at the National Socialist Party Congress at Nuremberg Sept. 10, according to reliable reports reaching here from Germany.

The principle of the “Aryan” paragraph, at present contained in the Officials Law, will be included in the new Citizenship Law, the report says. Marriages between “Aryans” and “non-Aryans” will be prohibited by law for the first time.
