Reich Towns Forbid Streets to Jews on Sunday

Download PDF for this date

Orders forbidding Jews to appear on the street on Sunday were today issued by a number of towns in the Gunzenhausen district.

the orders prohibit Jews from entering public institutions, drive autos in the towns, acquire a lease on real estate, or even visit the cemeteries.

Designed to force the Jews to leave the community, these orders deprive them of all municipal privileges save the duty to pay taxes.

“Aryans,” however are warned against molesting Jews on Saturdays. The orders threaten that all “Aryans” caught associating with Jews will be deprived of winter relief.

In Dusseldorf, about 300 Jewish retail shops were today notified by the local banks that henceforth no credits can be issued to them.

Since most of the stores are dependent on credit extended them by the local banks, this action will force many Jewish shopkeepers to transfer their businesses to “Aryans.”
