Jewish Architects to Be Restricted in France

Download PDF for this date

Jewish architects in unoccupied France were today ordered to register by October 25 in order that local boards may exclude them from the profession wherever they exceed two percent of the non-Jewish architects.

It was also announced today that since the introduction of the anti-Jewish laws, thirty-two Jewish banks have been liquidated in the occupied and unoccupied France and the remaining are now administered by aryan managers. More than 30 Jewish brokerage firms have also been disbanded.

At the same time it was learned that French authorities granted a two-day leave to all Jews in labor camps for the holiday period.
