J.t.a. Berlin Bureau Expelled from Reich News Agency Body

The authorities today notified the Berlin bureau of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency that it has been expelled from membership in the Association of News Agencies in Germany.

Executive heads of the bureau, Dr. Arno Herzberg and Otto Schick, were ordered to communicate at once with Hans Hinkel, Nazi Commissar for “non-Aryan” Culture, concerning its future activities.

At the same time, all German-Jewish newspapers in Berlin were informed that they had been expelled, as of today, from the Reich Press Chamber. The papers were placed under supervision of Mr. Hinkel.

This new move on the part of the authorities extends to the press the “ghetto” regulations hitherto limited to Jewish theatres.

The Berlin bureau of the J.T.A. supplies news to Jewish newspapers throughout Germany.
