Decree, passed by the City Council of Augsburg [Present-day Germany]: “Entry to the City [of Augsburg] shall be prohibited to neighboring Jews as well as foreign Jews, young and old, as well as Jewesses; this prohibition shall extend to the territory surrounding the City, as well, not just the area within the city walls. Any Jews found outside the city gates shall be expelled by the City Guards, and any citizens found to be in communication, negotiation or business with said Jews shall be arrested, on account of their contempt of this decree.”
