Shops are not permitted to serve patrons known to be Jews during other hours but are not called upon to ask a customer if he is a Jew. Owners of cafes and inns must inform authorities before this Friday whether their establishments are Jewish or “Aryan.” A mixed clientele in a restaurant is forbidden, even where separate rooms are provided.
