The depravity of Nazi anti-Semitism is further illustrated by several court cases. In addition to a number of items, such as the denial of a request for exemption from deportation by an eighty-seven year old Jew, the documents reproduced in this volume concentrate on German court cases. Foremost are cases of "racial pollution," as for example, the Katzenberger case in which a Jew was sentenced to death for alleged sexual relations with a gentile girl. Another case that demonstrates the degree to which the Nazi Ministry of Justice made anti-Semitic doctrine part of the judicial system is the "Jewish Mothermilk Case." A Jewish woman sold her milk to a German doctor. He in turn sold the milk to German mothers who could not themselves nurse their babies. When this case came before the court, it convicted the Jewish woman of fraud for misrepresenting her milk as fit for German infants.
