Purge of Jews from Dental Profession Launched by Reich

Download PDF for this date

Scores of Jewish dentists received notices today barring them from panel (insurance) practice. This measure, similar to the beginning of the Jewish purge of the medical profession, is regarded as the first intimation of barring Jews from the dental profession.

The Nazis, meanwhile, have found another Jewish pocket to pick. The 150 marks hitherto permitted emigrants to the United States as shipboard expenses have been reduced to 100 marks for first class passengers, 95 for second class and 90 for third class. This is all the cash which emigrants will be allowed to take without special permission. It has also been decreed that Jews must book definite sailings when buying steamship tickets and are not permitted to book more than six months in advance. The bookings can be changed only with special permission.
