Nazis Ban Use of Relief Funds to Employ Jewish Professionals

Relief recipients are prohibited from engaging Jewish physicians, dentists, pharmacists and attorneys under an order issued today by Wilhelm Frick, Minister of Interior.

The order states that Jewish professionals may no longer be paid for their services from relief funds, except in the case of physicians called in life-or-death emergencies.

Certificates signed by Jewish doctors will no longer be acceptable when presented by employees returning to work after illness, the order declares.
