“Ordinance” of the Pomerania government* [Present-day Germany, Poland]: “Jews, who hold protection-permits/patents (‘Schutz-Patente’) must pay their protection fees according to the current constitution, regardless of whether they are engaged in trade or not, because Jews who do not pay their protection-fees are no longer to be protected or tolerated […] and it is no longer up to Jews to decide whether they wish to trade [or not] and to get a permit [only] for that […].” [Researcher’s note: *The ordinance is signed in Stargrad by von Somnitz and von Borcke.]
