Decree, issued by the Danish Chancellery [Present-day Denmark, Germany]: “For all authorities in the duchies, it is henceforth the rule that foreign Jews, as well as those Jews who live in the duchies, but who are neither endowed with a royal letter of protection, nor reside in their own houses, shall not be issued a passport to Denmark.” [Researcher’s note: “Duchies” here referred to the duchies of Holstein and Schleswig, then the northernmost states of the Holy Roman Empire and under the control of the Danish king in his function as Duke of Holstein and Duke of Schleswig; both fiefdoms have since become part of the German state Schleswig-Holstein.]
