Download PDF for this date

Jewish physicians in Danzig have been deprived of the right to practice, effective Oct.1, under a decision of the Medical Association, the New York Times reported today from Warsaw. It is feared that the measure goes further than those applied in Germany, for Jewish doctors may not even be able to treat Jews. The correspondent said the decision was a violation of Danzig’s constitution.
