Download PDF for this date

The anti-Jewish laws introduced here by the Musselini regime in 1928 were annulled today in a decree issued by the mayor of this city.

The order said that all anti-Semitic measures would be considered null and void pending general regulations by the government “to restore normal relations between citizens by implementing social equality.”

The Milan radio today reported that the Jewish community council in Turin, which was dissolved in 1938, has been re-established. It gave no further details.
