Nazis Move to Bar Jewish Doctors from All Hospitals

Download PDF for this date

The expulsion of Jewish employes and Jewish doctors from all hospitals in Germany is the latest demand of the National Socialists which is published simultaneously today in the Angriff and the Voelkischer Beobachter, the leading Nazi organs. Both papers after their recent resumption of publication following their suspension have increased their size and intensified their anti-Jewish propaganda.

The Hitlerite organs disclosed that all hospitals affiliated with the Nazi groups have undertaken a campaign for the immediate introduction of a numerus clausus against Jews in the hospitals with the view of introducing later a numerus nullus.

At the same time the Nazi papers state that they will not be satisfied until they obtain the dismissal of Professor Newiaski of the University of Munich which they hope will pave the way to the prevention of future appointments of Jewish professors in other universities.

Last February, when Thuringia was still under Nazi control, the Thuringian government hospital announced that there were vacancies in its staff but that no Jews need apply.
