Health Official Urges Ban on Jewish Doctors

September 20, 1933
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The Berlin Commissioner of Health of the Reich government, Professor Reiter, came out here with the request that only Nazis be permitted to practice medicine in Germany.

The old system, which admitted Jews to universities and colleges, was attacked by the commissioner, who asserted that non-German physicians have “corrupted” the women, leading to destroyed family morals.

This is the second prohibitive ban placed on the Jewish physician in Germany and reveals the intention of the Reich government to ban altogether Jews from the medical profession.

The recent order of the Minister of Economics saying that merchant stores are not to display signs that they are German firms, was ignored today when all members of the Nazi organization for Trade Artisans were ordered by party headquarters to obtain special display signs. These signs will show affiliation with the Nazi party. They are obviously intended to stimulate the anti-Jewish trade boycott.
