Danzig Jewish Judges Refuse Senate’s Demand They Resign

Download PDF for this date

The only two Jewish judges in the Nazi-ruled Free City today rejected demands of the Senate that they resign. They declared the Constitution provides they cannot be removed before the age of 65. The judges were called before the Senate and asked to voluntarily resign on the ground that Danzig did not wish Jewish judges.
