Prussian Ministry of Justice Creates New Harsh Prison Regulations

Sachsenhausen Prisoners

The Prussian Ministry of Justice introduces a new set of harsh prison regulations in which privileges "should be a very special exception."

The government makes a special point of telling the public about these harsh regulations in the expectation that the general public would approve.

Under the Nazis, criminal law is not so much about protecting the community from crime as it is about protecting the community from the influence of undesirable elements.

This "influence" extends beyond criminal activity to include the possibility that they might breed and thereby harm the racial makeup of the community.

For this reason, many people in prison for purely civil crimes, not political offenses, will be selected for extermination right alongside Jews, Slavs, Gypsies, and so forth.
