Download PDF for this date

“Aryan” women seen or known to be associating with Jews are being warned, it became known here today, that their faces will be conspicuously branded “so Germans may recognize women who associate with Jews.”

Commenting on these warnings, the Westdeutscher Beobachter, complains that this threatened punishment is too brutal. The newspaper argues that such threats are “only playing into the hands of international Jewry.”
