Fines will be levied against customers and patrons of Jewish shops in Wuerzburger, General Nazieger, Nazi commissar, has announced in Wurzburg.

“The Jews are not friends of the German people,” he declared The Germans are deadly enemies of the Jews and vice versa. Germans consistent in their belief, will refuse to buy from Jews. Unfortunately, some do not possess this pride and feeling of honor, particularly the women, some of whom openly, others secretly, continue to purchase from Jews. It also becomes necessary to form a women’s department for traitors and it is similarly advisable to brand and mark women persisting in making purchases from Jews, to fine them and publish their names in the press.

“Germans should beware of these women who no longer have anything in common with the German nation since one of these days which is not far away, we will settle our account also with such people.”

The Juedische Rundschau, which reprints this statement, urges the Government to issue instructions to prevent such “grievance” to the Jewish people.
