Predict Reich Will Bar Jews Entirely As Food Sellers

Download PDF for this date

Jews will soon be entirely forbidden to deal in foodstuffs, it was stated tonight in the best informed circles.

The prediction was partially based on reports in the German press today disclosing that all Jewish-owned butter and egg stores in Stuttgart have been closed by the authorities. According to the same source, the elimination from Jews in this field is progressing rapidly in Berlin.

The elimination of Jewish grocers is considered a comparatively simple matter since the entire distribution of food is under the direct control of the Reichsnaerst and a special Government federal agency created “to secure food for the German people.” The latter office has recently been cutting off the supply sources of the Jewish wholesalers, apparently with the intention of making it impossible for Jews to sell food.
