“aryan” Stenographers Ordered to Quit Jewish Employers

Thousands of “Aryan” women office workers were faced today with the prospect of starting the New Year hunting for jobs when the Nazi Government, in a surprise order, extended the Nuremberg laws to apply to them.

The order prohibits “Aryan” women from working as secretaries and stenographers for Jews and instructs them to quit their jobs immediately.

This interpretation of the Nuremberg law, which places the office workers in the same category as serving girls (30,000 of whom are jobless today as a result of it) comes as an unpleasant shock to thousands who had no inkling that it was being planned.
