Download PDF for this date

Restrictive measures locally enforced against the Jews in Bohemia-Moravia are revealed in the Prague newspaper Neue Tag, organ of the Nazi Protectorate officials.

The Storm Troop leader Emil Sladek, newly appointed police chief of Iglau, has ordered the conspicuous marking of all Jewish businesses, law offices and surgeries as a segregation measure.

The Moravian Provincial pawn-shop at Bruenn has announced that only “Aryans” will be admitted to auctions during the month of September. Those wishing to attend must submit documentary proof of their “Aryan” origin.

The Goeding district administration has prohibited Jews from entering “Aryan” barber shops. At Rakonitz, Jews have been banned from seven restaurants and cafes, the municipal library and public baths except those specifically reserved for Jews.

Vlajka, organ of the radical Czech Fascist group, has launched a campaign to compel Jews to wear special badges. The journal also demands establishment of labor concentration camps for Jews who are “undermining the energy and clear judgment of the Czechs by whispering propaganda.”
