Jewish Cattle Dealers Lose Suit Against Reich Cooperative

Download PDF for this date

Stating that “not the dead letter of the law, but the meaning of the law under the Nazi racial principles,” must be considered, the district court at Aachen (Aix-la-Chapelle) near the Belgian border, today rejected the writ of the Jewish cattle dealers against the local milk-marketing cooperative society.

The Jewish cattle dealers sued the cooperative for refusing to pay the agreed price to farmers dealing with Jews.

The Harsfurt municipality municipality today warned local busines men dealing with Jews that they would not receive orders from the municipality. It also warned that others dependent on the municipality would not receive unemployment benefits if they are caught having any dealings with Jews.

The same city bans Jewish children from child welfare centers in the community.

Benches in all public parks in the town have signs reading “Use by Jews not permitted.”

In Rommersheim-am-Rhein orders were issued today forbidding Jews to park automobiles in public parking places.

Orders will shortly be issued by the Reich ministries of culture prohibiting Jews to attend cinema theaters throughout Germany, it was disclosed here today.

Laws to this effect are already in operation in Kiel and in numerous smaller cities. The effect of this new decree would be to extend the ban to cover the entire Reich and thus isolate the Jews further by restricting them only to performances arranged by the Jewish Cultural Association, under the control of Hans Hinkel, special Nazi commissar for Jewish cultural and intellectual affairs.
