Establish “anti-corruption” Department in Prussia

Download PDF for this date

The Prussian Minister of Justice, Kerrl, yesterday announced the establishment of a special department designed to combat corruption. The significance of this announcement is obvious when one recalls the ceaseless charges of corruption directed by Nazi propaganda against Jewish officials throughout Germany.

At the same time, Minister Kerrl has requested that the presidents of law courts should inform all Jewish lawyers of the advisability of surrendering their situations, as they will otherwise be exposed to grave danger in view of the public feeling against them.
