Securities Decree Aimed at Jews, Reich Press States

Download PDF for this date

A “compulsory deposit ordinance” requiring owners of foreign securities to deposit them with the Reichsbank was published here today with the unofficial comment by newspapers that the measure was taken to prevent emigrating German Jews from taking their capital with them in that form.

The ordinance applies not only to securities held by Germans here but also abroad.
