Download PDF for this date

All Jewish representatives and employes of Aryan firms must be dismissed before December 31, according to official instructions issued today.

A statement by the press department of the German Labor Front in Bremen promised today that the Labor Front would see to it that in the future no “Aryan” firm conceals the employment of Jews.

Among the significant anti-Hewish developments of the day also was the order sent out by the commissariat of education in Saxony that study of the Nuremberg “ghetto laws” must be included in the curriculum of all schools.

Der Schwarzo Korps, official organ of Hitler’s own Elite Guard, in its’ issue today demands that Jews be forbidden to work as taxi drivers because the economic situation in the taxicab industry is daily growing worse in Berlin.

Today’s edition of the Deutsche Richterzeitung, official judicial organ, explains the basic guiding lines to be followed by German judges are to coincide with the program of the National Socialist Democratic Party. Judges, the publication declares, must understand that the solo lawmaker in Germany is Reichsfuehrer Hitler.

That considerable pressure is being exercised upon the Government to issue further anti-Jewish laws was disclosed in a speech at the Sportspalast here last night by Propaganda Minister Paul Joseph Goebbels addressing 15,000 Storm Troopers.

“The Jewish question,” he declared, “cannot be solved by individuals, but by the laws which we issue because we are an anti-Jewish Government. The issuance of such laws is our political necessity and nobody needs to remind us of it. Members of our party, however, must maintain discipline. For each man to act as he desires is as impossible as it is for a soldier in war time to decide for himself when and where to conduct an offensive.”
