Czech Jews Barred from Purchasing Fish During Pre-christmas Period

December 11, 1941
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Jews are specifically excluded from purchasing carp during the week of Dec. 15 to 24, just before Christmas, it was announced today on the Prague radio.

Only households with at least three aryan members will get the requisition cards necessary to purchase the fish. Since it is almost impossible for Jews in the Czech Protectorate to buy any meat, the ban on some fish will work an additional hardship on them during the designated period.
