Download PDF for this date

The Jewish question in Slovakia will be solved on the German model, Propaganda Minister Alexander Mach declared in an interview in Bratislava today. He indicated that measures similar to the Nuremberg Laws, distinguishing between citizens and nationals, would be issued.

Meanwhile, Zionist circles in Prague feared that since the Gestapo was not issuing emigration permits to Jews, Palestine immigration certificates for Czech Jews, earmarked for special dates, would be invalidated. Hanna Steiner, Czech president of the Women’s International Zionist Organization, has been released from arrest by the Gestapo, it was learned.

General Gaida, former leader of the Czech Fascists, was reported to be among those recently arrested by the Gestapo.
