The expulsion of Jewish inmates from insane asylums in Germany is demanded in the Reichs-Gezundheitsblatt reaching here today from Berlin. The Nazi medical organ points out that there is a laxity in observing the “Aryan” laws when admitting patients into the insane asylums and says that the insane “Aryans” are sane enough to complain about the admittance of Jews into their institutions.

“Numerous complaints,” the Gezundheitsblatt writes, “have been received from Aryan insane patients as well as from the asylum staffs and health authorities, reiterating that Jewish mental cases should be treated only at the asylum maintained by the Reichsvereinigung of the Jews of Germany at Bendorf-Sayn near Cotilens.” Urgent cases, the magazine states, may be confined elsewhere, but must speedily be moved to Bendorf.

The Reichsvereinigung of Jews in Germany yesterday received a list, of instructions from the Gestapo containing 35 provisions regarding the wearing of yellow Mogen Davids which Jews in the Reich must now wear. The instructions state that confinement in a concentration camp will be the punishment for those violating the regulations.
