Jewish M.d.’s Deleted from Health Guides

Download PDF for this date

Hitler’s campaign against Jewish physicians took a new and insidious turn today when it was learned that a number of municipalities of health resorts in this country resolved to eliminate from the official resort directories the names of Jewish doctors. Visitors to the health resorts are usually guided by the directories in their choice of medical advisors.

The measures against Jewish doctors, which in the past have been confined to excluding them from work on the various municipal sick funds, thus are extended to impairing their private practices.

Local administrations under Nazi control everywhere approved of the decisions to eliminate Jews from the health resort guide tooks.

Another blow against Jewish doctors was struck today when a conference here of private sick benefit insurance groups in Berlin, and delegates voted to dismiss all non-Aryan physicians from their employment.
