Berlin Jewish Institutions Told to Dismiss Alien Employes

Download PDF for this date

The authorities today ordered all Jewish public institutions and private commercial enterprises in Berlin to dismiss all Jewish employes holding foreign passports.

Apparent purpose of the order is to force Jews having residential and labor permits to leave the country by depriving them of opportunity to earn their livelihood.

Among the public institutions ordered to take this step were the Jewish Community, the German Zionist Federation and all the central Jewish bodies.

The Frankfurter Zeitung today reported that Dr. Wilhelm Grau, one of the heads of the Reichsinstitute for the revision of Germany’s history, has urged the authorities to dismiss all Jewish custodians of Judaica libraries and replace them with young “Aryans.”
