March 23, 1937

Christian Jews have been expelled by a German Government order from the League of St. Paul, an organization of baptized Jews, the New York Times reported today from Berlin. They are advised to join the Jewish Cultural League.

This is the first time the Government has demanded precedence of racial principle over religion in the Christian community, the Times dispatch said. In effect the decree tries to force Christianized Jews back into the faith of their fathers.
