Nazis Can Whistle for This Tax Bill

July 1, 1935
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

One bill Dr. Kurt Rosenfeld, exiled former Prussian minister of justice, doesn’t intend to pay is that received from the German government ordering him to remit 80,517 marks as principal and interest at 120 per cent a year for having fled from Germany after his life was threatened by the Nazis.

The “bill” informs him that all his property and that of his wife has been seized “on account.” Dr. Rosenfeld commented that the property was seized two years ago and that this act makes the seizure “strictly legal.”
