Exempted Doctors to Seek Protection

Jewish doctors and. lawyers who, in accordance with the “Aryan paragraph,” are permitted to continue their practice in Germany, will start a campaign for legislation similar to that proclaimed recently by the Reich Minister of the Interior for Jewish pharmacists, it is predicted today in the Wahrheit.

The order by the Minister of the Interior to which the Wahrheit refers provides that no discrimination should be practiced by municipal and state institutions against Jewish pharmacists who have had their licenses renewed under the Hitler regime. Orders from state and municipal hospitals as well as from sick funds can be placed with such Jewish pharmacists who are not to be boycotted, the regulations emphasize.

The order is now causing great dissatisfaction among the Nazi party officers. A sharp difference is evident between the order issued recently by Rudolf Hess to boycott the Jews in every walk of life, and that given by Minister Frick which warns against boycotting Jewish pharmacists.
