Download PDF for this date

Jewish firms in Prussia are not to be permitted to use the word “German” in their signs, the Prussian Supreme Court ruled today.

“The word German is increasingly synonymous with ‘Aryan’,” the court explained.

In its decision the court also advised the introduction of stricter limitations in using the word “German” in the names of non-Aryan firms.
