“Tribunal Decree” issued by the Courts and addressed to the Local Authorities (“Kreishauptleute”) [Present-day Czech Republic, Germany]: “[…] the [Jewish] eldest (heads of communities) are to be taken by the head and [remain] arrested (‘arrestlich aufbewahren’) [until they have submitted the required payment. …]” [Researcher’s note: This order was issued after the Jewish community had fallen behind with their payment of the required tax for the import and sale of the “paradise-apple.”]
