Download PDF for this date

Buying in a Jewish store is now legitimate ground for divorce in the courts of the German Reich, it was revealed here tonight. The Nazi juridical review, National Sozialistische Rechtsspizgel, reported a recent case in which a husband sued for divorce on charges that his wife had purchased from Jewish shopkeepers despite his express ban. The court granted the divorce and made the wife pay all costs, the review said.
