The Reich Ministry of Justice under Franz Gürtner announces that they will be dropping the racial term "Aryan" in favor of "European Racial." This broader category will apply to more ethnic groups, giving them a right to live under Nazi rule.

There is no immediately obviously reason for doing this, but it may be that Gürtner has been made aware of the coming war which Germany will be launching and thus of a need to broaden the eventual base of privileged classes who can be counted on to support the Nazi racial agenda.
