Reich Jewish Press Executives Told to Report to Hinkel

Download PDF for this date

All business managers of Jewish newspapers and publishing houses were ordered by the Reich Press Chamber today to communicate with Hans Hinkel, Nazi Commissar for “Non-Aryan” Culture, and await his instructions.

While no reason was given for the action, the order was interpreted as a move to transfer control of Jewish publications from the Propaganda Ministry to Mr. Hinkel. Similar notifications were expected to be sent to Jewish editors.
