Transcript of Nuremberg Laws

The Nuremburg Laws Section 1 Marriages between Jews and citizens of German or kindred blood are forbidden. Marriages concluded in defiance of this law are void, even if, for the purpose of evading this law, they were concluded abroad. Section 2 Extramarital sexual intercourse between Jews and subjects of the state of Germany or related blood is forbidden. Section 3 Jews will not be permitted to employ female citizens under the age of 45, of German or kindred blood, as domestic workers. Section 4 Jews are forbidden to display the Reich and national flag or the national colour. On the other hand they are permitted to display the Jewish colours. The exercise of this right is protected by the State. Section 5 A person who acts contrary to the prohibition of Section 1 will be punished with hard labour.A person who acts contrary to the prohibition of Section 2 will be punished with imprisonment or with hard labour. A person who acts contrary to the provisions of Sections 3 or 4 will be punished with imprisonment up to a year and with a fine, or with one of these penalties. Section 6 The law will become effective on the day after its promulgation; Section 3, however, not until January 1, 1936. On the evening of September 15, 1935, two measures were announced to the Reichstag at the annual Party Rally in Nuremberg, becoming known as the Nuremberg Laws The first law, The Law for the Protection of German Blood and German Honour, prohibited marriages and extramarital intercourse between "Jews" and "Germans". The second law, The Reich Citizenship Law, stripped persons not considered of German blood of their German citizenship and introduced a new distinction between "Reich citizens" and "nationals".
