Rumor Saxonia is Planning to Prevent Jews Marrying

September 25, 1933
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The Freiheit, Socialist paper, has learned that the government of Saxonia is preparing a law which will prohibit Jews from marrying.

While the Nazi press has contained a large number of proposals that intermarriage between Jews and Gentiles be prohibited and suggesting severe punishment for intermarriages, this, so far as is known, is the first occasion on which the suggestion has been advanced that Jews be prohibited from marrying among themselves.
