14 “exempt” Jewish Doctors, Goaded by Nazi Discrimination, Quit Posts

Download PDF for this date

Goaded by repeated acts of discrimination against them by the authorities, fourteen Jewish doctors today resigned their posts on the sick-fund panels of State insurance companies.

Still employed by reason of their exemption from the “Aryan paragraph” as war veterans, the physicians quit in protest against continual warnings by the authorities to members of the sick-fund panels not to patronize Jewish doctors even if in the exempt class.
