Jewish Cultural League Must Take Converts into Fold

March 24, 1937
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The Jewish Cultural League, “ghetto” organization founded under Nazi direction, was faced today with the problem of accepting into membership baptized full-blooded and three-quarter Jews.

Hans Hinkel, Nazi commissioner for Jewish cultural affairs, has ordered all Jews in those categories expelled from the St. Paul’s Union of “Non-Aryan” Christians. The order specifies they are to join the Jewish Cultural League, which hitherto has comprised only full-blooded Jews. St. Paul’s Union, it was decreed, henceforth may have only baptized half-Jews or quarter-Jews as members.
