Nazi Educators Put New Ban on Jews

Download PDF for this date

The Prussian Ministry of Education today set July 31 as the final deadline for the elimination of Jews from connection with private schools in Prussia. By that date all Jews still remaining as owners of private educational institutions, or as teachers in them, including training schools for the theatre and dance institutes, must have been removed from their posts, the ministry decreed.

The order exempts Jewish war veterans and the sons and daughters of Jews slain at the front during the war. It does not apply to “non-Aryan” purely Jewish institutions.
