As a result of “racial policy,” 64,697 Jews left Germany in 1933 and there has been “a marked decrease in German Jewish population in 1934,” the Nazi government officially announced today.

There are 499,682 Jews remaining in Germany and they constitute seven-tenths of one per cent of the population, the government officials stated, adding that one-third of the German Jews reside in Berlin.
