New Reich Edict Bars Jewish Architects

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

Careers of German-Jewish architects, who have thus far weathered the ravages of anti-Semitic legislation, have been blasted with publication of a governmental order making membership compulsory in the Reich Chamber of Architects.

The order declares that non-members of the chamber may not practice the profession. Since Jews, however, are barred from membership in the chamber, the order is tantamount to barring them from the profession.
