In Karlsruhe, Germany, the Oberlandsgericht (Supreme Court) grants a divorce for an "Aryan-Jewish" couple. Although such marriages are not at this point specifically regulated by Nazi German law, the court says that the divorce is necessary "because 'Aryan-Jewish' marriages are not only undesirable, but pernicious, unnatural and monstrous."

This is just one of many cases where courts are granting divorces based on nothing other than the allegation that one or the other partner is non-Aryan. It's a necessary and inevitable consequence of the extreme racial purity laws which the Nazis are imposing on Germany and will be imposing on the territories they conquer throughout Europe.
