Feb. 18, 1636

“Order” of Heinrich Höcker* issued in Münster [Prince-Bishopric of Münster; Present-day Germany]: “[…] Henrich Höcker, riding servant, orders (‘reytender diener, befellicht’) Isaak von Dulman and all other Jews who are still here and present on permits given to them by the h[onorable] council, to report to the authorities (‘anzumelden’), and to leave this city within the next 14 days as of which [date] their permits as well as those of their wives and children will be terminated.” [Researcher’s note: It is unclear who Heinrich Höcker was exactly. He appears to have been an authorized delegate of either the prince-elector or the emperor himself. On November 24, 1639, the Council of Münster issues a new ordinance allowing Jews to return to the city.]
