German Jews Observe Purim over Country

Download PDF for this date

The Jews of Germany are widely celebrating Purim, German Jewish publications are devoting special pages to the holiday, including the C. V. Zeitung, organ of the Central Union of German Citizens of the Jewish Faith.

Tonight the Jewish Culture League Theatre is giving a special holiday performance. Jewish cafes are advertising special Purim progress in the street cars.

The Nazi government announced today that non-Jews will be permitted to attend performances of the Jewish Culture League Theatre, thus removing the anomaly of non-Jewish wives being refused permission to attend the theatre in company with their husbands.

When the Nazi government granted permission for the organization of the theatre, it insisted that non-Jews be refused admittance.
