Political History

An order signed by Adolf Hitler, Wilhelm Frick, and Rudolf Hess will deny all Jewish physicians in Germany their license to practice medicine by the end of September. This affects over 3000 Jewish doctors in Germany.

The only exceptions are those doctors who are needed to treat others Jews, primarily their own families, but they won't be regarded as full-fledged members of the medical community.

Denying Jewish doctors the right or ability to treat non-Jews (which effectively means Christians) is a restriction that was frequently imposed on Jews by papal bulls throughout the Middle Ages.
