Prague Bans Jews from Public Baths

Download PDF for this date

The authorities today prohibited Jews from using public baths here under penalty of a fine or imprisonment. A police communique said a special poor had been set aside for Jews in the outskirts of the city. The alleged reason for the order was that “the presence of Jews in public baths disturb peace and order in the city.”
