Download PDF for this date

Jewish diabetics in the German city of Dresden are barred from receiving the extra food allowance granted to aryan patients, according to an announcement by the mayor of the city, which is published in the Deadener Neurite Nachrichten arriving here today.

The paper states that non-Jewish diabetics, as well as hospitals and nursing homes treating Aryans, will receive an extra winter allowance per patient of eighteen tins of vegetables. This will be over and above the food such patients are entitled to purchase with their ration cards.
