(15 Sept. 1935)

Although Jews had been discriminated against from the outset of the Third Reich in Germany, the laws which were announced at the annual Nuremberg mass rally of the Nazi Party actually stripped them of their citizenship and severely limited their political and economic rights. The Laws were in fact proclaimed in a haste, and it took months for the ministerial bureaucracies to work out how ‘Jewishness’ was to be defined in detail. As the Laws were designed to prevent mixed‐‘race’ offspring, Jews were forbidden to marry Germans or people from similar extraction. As an insult with its implications of immorality, Jews were barred from employing women under the age of 45 in their households.
