Download PDF for this date

A recent issue of the Reichs Anzeiger, the Official Gazette of the German Government, which reached here today, carries an announcement of a Berlin court stating that Ruth Erika Spiero, daughter of a famous Jewish pianist, Bruno Israel Spiero, has applied to the court for a decision certifying that the pianist is not her father. She thus hopes to be classified by the court as an “Aryan.”
