Italian Government Sets Up Racial Office

Download PDF for this date

The Interior Ministry today established a special office for demography and race protection. The action followed issuance by a group of fascist professors last week of a ten-point race doctrine under sponsorship of the ministry of Popular Culture, proclaiming Italians as an “Aryan race” and Jews as not members of the Italian race.
