New Race Furity Test Applied by Reich Court

Download PDF for this date

A new twist to the racial purity question will be given here today when a court is scheduled to apply a biological heredity test on a child because its “Aryan” father declares the child is “of Jewish blood.”

The father bases his contention on the fact that his “Aryan” wife’s first husband, the father of their two eldest Jewish children, was Jewish. A blood test having proved unconclusive, the court ordered the biological test applied.
