Jews Excluded from School Fee Cuts in Prussia; Jewish Auctioneers Banned

Download PDF for this date

Jewish and also “stateless” pupils are deprived of the benefit of a reduction in school fees in Prussia, it was announced today. The reduction increases with each child in the family after the first. Similar measures are expected in other states.

(Persons here familiar with Germany’s educational system explained that it is customary to levy a school tax on a family when a child enters school. This tax is progressively reduced for each successive child of a family who enters school. Jews have now been barred in Prussia from the benefits of this reduction, and hence must pay the same fee for successive children as for the first.)

Jewish auctioneers, under a decree of the Economics Ministry, will be eliminated as of July 31. Effective immediately, no licenses will be issued to Jews and all present licenses of Jews expire July 31. The decree authorizes the minister to extend the rule to auctioneers’ agents.

Berlin women are forced to wear “chemical hats” because the Jewish-controlled hat industry is boycotting the artificial flower industry, Der Angriff, a Nazi organ, complains. It describes the “boycott” as a “Jewish trick” to destroy the artificial flower industry once largely in Jewish hands.
