Not a single Jewish lawyer is left in 47 German cities, data published by the German authorities has revealed. The figures which summarized the ousting of Jewish lawyers in different states showed that the state of Thuringia especially goes on record as having gone further than any other German state in ousting Jewish lawyers.

Recently the German press boasted that the city of Marburg was completely “Judenrein” (free of Jews) and that the last Jewish lawyer was suspended on October 7, despite the promise of the Minister of Economics that there would be no more dismissals of Jews.
