Nazi Government Reveals 'Law for Protection of German Blood & Honor'

Nuremberg Party Rally, 1934

The Nazi government reveals a new law at the Party rally in Nuremberg called the "Law for the Protection of German Blood and German Honor." The purpose is to prevent marriages and any sort of sexual relationship between Jews and Aryans.

This law was only announced three days ago in a speech by Nazi physician Gerhard Wagner, surprising everyone, and two people only started writing it yesterday morning.

Franz Gürtner, Reich Minister of Justice, doesn't even learn about it until he hears about it on the radio.

This law states:

"Convinced entirely that the purity of German blood is essential to the further existence of the German people, and inspired by the uncompromising determination to safeguard the future of the German nation, the Reichstag has unanimously adopted the following law, which is promulgated herewith:

Marriages between Jews and citizens of German or related blood are forbidden. Marriages concluded in defiance of this law are void, even if, for the purpose of evading this law, they are concluded abroad. ...

Relation outside marriage between Jews and nationals for German or kindred blood are forbidden.t...

Jews will not be permitted to employ female nationals of German or kindred blood in their households."

Violations are punished with hard labor in the first two cases and up to a year in prison in the third.
