Danzig Jew Deprived of Reich Citizenship

The first case of a Danzig resident losing his German citizenship under the Nuremberg citizenship laws is reported in the press here. Dr. Samuel Dingman, a Danzigborn Jew who elected to retain his German citizenship when the Free City was established, has been barred from German citizenship as a “non-Aryan” and, as a result, his right to practice medicine has been withdrawn.
