Reich Strips Jews of Citizenship in Municipalities

Download PDF for this date

Minister of Interior Wilhelm Frick issued an order today depriving Jews of citizenship in municipalities. The order points out that German municipal law is no longer in effect so far as Jews are concerned.

Jews are to be regarded merely as inhabitants of municipalities, the order states, and the Nuremberg racial laws are to be extended to municipalities.
