356 “jewish” Authors on Thuringian Blacklist; Order Library Reexamination

Download PDF for this date

Reexamination of all public libraries was ordered by the Ministry of Education of Thuringia here today in order to assure elimination of all belles lettres which are the creations of “disintegrated Jewish spirits”, and scientific works by Jewish authors. Publication of such works is prohibited in the future.

A list of prohibited writers, the majority of whom are Jews, has been published.

The list includes 206 novelists and poets, 12 literary and art critics, 38 historians and political writers. Simultaneously, Erwin Loewe, Berlin publisher, announced that during the winter he will publish a series of works written exclusively by famous Jewish writers, biographers and historians. The first volume of the series is to appear before Hanukah, December 13 to December 20.
