Non-aryans May Not Work for Church in Brandenburg

Download PDF for this date

The ecclesiastical parliament of the province of Brandenburg has decided to introduce the Aryan clause for all clergymen and all church employees. With-in the near future all must prove their Aryan descent as far back as both their grandparents.

###ning a party was held at the house of Achimeir on the occasion of the ‘great victory’.” Great victory was placed in inverted quotes and the prosecution placed particular emphasis on this fact.

A third note began, “The friend of the English, the eater of the ruler’s bread, fell at the hands of an unknown.”

In still another passage of the diary, Achimeir discusses the difference between political and non-political crimes, stating that political crimes are for the accused and their friends positive acts.

Achimeir cross-examined Zwi Rosen, the Hebrew interpreter for the criminal investigation department of the Palestine police who read the excerpts from Achimeir’s diary to the court.

At one point in the proceedings Achimeir produced a copy of Chazit Ha’am, extremist Revisionist newspaper, published after the murder of Dr. Arlosoroff, mourning for the murdered man, whereupon the prosecution produced a copy of an earlier issue dated June 16, the very day of the murder, bitterly attacking David Ben-Gurion, leader of the Palestinian workers and Dr. Arlosoroff, who had just returned from Germany.

Yehuda Minz, 19-year-old member of the Brith Trumpeldor, Revisionist youth organization, was freed yesterday following a sensational and unexpected announcement by the public prosecutor that new evidence in his possession had decided him to withdraw the charges against Minz. He left the court room after shaking hands with the other three defendants.
