‘aryan’ Clause to Affect Illegitimate Children

Download PDF for this date

Further proof that there will be no relaxation of the functioning of the “Aryan” clause in German life was offered yesterday in a ruling by the Ministry of the Interior concerning illegitimate children.

According to this ruling, illegitimate children whose mothers were “Aryan” and fathers “non-Aryan” are to be classed as “non-Aryan.” Where the identity of the father is not known, the child is to be given the benefit of the doubt and be considered “Aryan.”
