German-born Jews Exempt in Citizenship Withdrawals

Download PDF for this date

The withdrawal of citizenship rights from 130,000 post-war German subjects does not affect German-born Jews, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency was informed today in official circles, where the law was interpreted as affecting only post-war naturalized citizens, even if they had lived in Germany for years before the war. While the revision of citizenship does not affect naturalized Aryans, all Jewish naturalizations will definitely be cancelled, it was learned.
