German Jews are in No Danger

October 4, 1933


This statement was issued by Hans Frank, the Nazi Party's leading jurist. He served as Adolf Hitler's personal lawyer and later was appointed to a number of official posts, including Governor-General of Poland during World War II. He was convicted of war crimes at Nuremberg and executed in 1946.


...The firm decision of the Reich authorities is that there should be a certain pause now in the continued disputation with the Jews. The Reich authorities further desire to state – in particular as far as the world [abroad] is concerned, that Jews living in Germany within the framework of German law may carry out their occupations without hindrance...[and that] a certain agreement has now been achieved in the area of disputation with the Jews... that the security and life of the Jews in Germany is in no danger....
