Window sign to identify a Jewish doctor
Published in 1920, the Nazi Party 25 Point Program publicly declared the intention to segregate Jews from “Aryan” society and to abolish Jewish political, legal, and civil rights. After Hitler was appointed Chancellor in 1933, anti-Jewish legislation severely restricted all aspects of Jewish professional, public, and private life, including participation in the medical field. Jewish doctors were required to apply identifying labels to their offices, mailboxes, and correspondence that identified them as Jewish and to state that they could only treat Jews.
