THE FOREIGN SECTION OF THE NATIONAL SOCIALIST LEAGUE TODAY PUBLISHED A LIST OF “ARYAN” ATTORNEYS IN ALL PARTS OF THE WORLD TOGETHER WITH A WARNING THAT “TO CONFER THE DEFENSE OF GERMAN INTERESTS TO JEWISH LAWYERS ABROAD IS A HOSTILE ACT AGAINST THE GERMAN PEOPLE AND EVIDENCE OF UNPARDONABLE INDIFFERENCE,” THE HAVAS NEWS AGENCY REPORTED.

THE LIST AND WARNING WERE ADDRESSED TO THE GERMAN PEOPLE AS A WHOLE AND PARTICULARLY TO ALL GERMANS HAVING ECONOMIC INTERESTS IN OTHER COUNTRIES. THE LEAGUE SUGGESTED THAT ALL LEGAL WORK FOR GERMANS ABROAD SHOULD BE HANDLED BY THE LAWYERS WHOSE NAMES APPEAR IN THE LIST.
