September 30, 1940
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

An admission that “certain occurrences” involving “avarice” in the taking over of Jewish property had caused temporary suspension of the “Aryanization” program was made in a radio broadcast today by Slovakian Vice-Premier Sano Mach.

“This avarice,” Mach said,” is no better than Jewish avarice.” He said the program of “Aryanizing” Jewish trade and commerce would be resumed within the next month.

Mach reiterated the Slovak Government’s “implacable resolve” to free Slovakia of the “Jewish enemy.”
