It was learned today that a criminal court in Nuernberg-Fuerth has sentenced a Jew to eight months in jail because he entered into an engagement with an “Aryan” woman. The court explained that the sentence was light in consideration of the fact that the offense was committed while the couple was abroad trying to arrange marriage.
