Novel Test “proves” Child’s Father Was “non-aryan”

Download PDF for this date

A “racial biological” test applied by an expert in the Koenigsberg University’s Institute for Racial Research has been accepted as proof by a local court that a child’s parents were “non-Aryan.”

The test was ordered when an “Aryan”, seeking release from payment of alimony to his divorced Jewish wife and contribution to the support of the child, charged that the child was not his. He charged the child’s father was a Jew.

The expert testified that, according to his tests the child’s father apparently was a “non-Aryan.” The court thereupon ruled yesterday in favor of the plaintiff.
