Image 1228 Nazis Open Race Bureau For Eugenic Segregation [dashed line] Aim Is 'Pure' German Stock Free of Semitic Influence From the Herald Tribune Bureau Copyright 1933, New York Tribune, Inc. Berline, May 4. - The first "race bureau" in Germany was established today at Dortmund, in the Ruhr district, by order of the city commissioner. Its object is to build up a "pure" Germanic race, free from Semitic influence. In pursuance of this aim, laws will be passed providing for "segregation and improvement of races." The population will be divided by families into two classes - families whose representatives are acceptable to the state and those whose members are "undesirable, as being a burden upon the nation." Dr. Brauss, the Dortmund physician who has been placed in charge of the race bureau, announces that he has already on file data concerning 80,000 school children of the city.
