All Jewish Notaries in Reich Lose Posts

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

All Jewish notaries hitherto permitted to practice under an exemption of the “Aryan” clause were notified today by the Minister of Justice that they must surrender their notarial seals and records to the courts within one week, and that they may not practice “until further notice.”

This order, striking at the existence of at least one thousand Jewish families in Germany, is believed to be a direct outcome of the Nuremberg laws,

The order also indicates that the Nuremberg laws cancel all exemptions for war service and other causes.

Another incident inspired by the Nuremberg laws occurred today in Weisbaden, where the gas and electric companies, following the example of those at Mainz, cut off the supply to Jewish firms,

The companies issued a statement explaining their act as a “special decision in accordance with the Nuremberg laws which permit electric and gas service to ‘Aryan’ firms only.”

“Neither the Jews nor the world need complain about the new ghetto-laws,” Nazi leader Grohe told the district officials of Cologne today, “because these laws give the Jews State protection, which a Nazi State is not expected to furnish.”

Mixed marriages contracted before September 17, when the new ghetto laws were promulgated, are valid, it was officially announced.

The Deutsche Nachrichten Bureau, official Nazi news service, today denied the report appearing in the London Daily Telegraph about anti-Jewish excesses in Frankfurt-am-Main.

The official service also denies that “Aryan” maids were pulled out of bed by Nazis for serving in Jewish households.

All tickets have been sold out for Friday’s meeting in the Berlin Sportspalast, where Julius Streicher, leading Nazi anti-Semite, will deliver his second anti-Jewish speech in the German capital.
