Hitler Explains Importance of the Nuremburg Laws to Party Leaders

Extract from Hitler’s speech at a meeting of party leaders

At this meeting the Fuehrer expressed his gratitude to the responsible heads of the Reich Party organization for their work, made use of the opportunity to emphasize the importance of the new Laws, and to point out that National-Socialist legislation offered the only possibility of achieving a tolerable relationship with the Jews living in Germany. The Fuehrer emphasized especially that in accordance with these Laws the Jews in Germany were offered opportunities of living their own national ( voelkisch ) life in all areas, as they had never been able to do in any other country. With a view to this the Fuehrer reiterated his order to the Party to avoid all individual actions against Jews, as before.
