“Ordinance” issued by Kaiser Friedrich Wilhelm II [Prussia; Present-day Germany, Poland, Belgium]: “[…] and so we order that […] Jews are not permitted to purchase any factory made merchandise, whether they may have been made locally or in a foreign country – and to sell them in shops, booths, or on tables or from door-to-door. They are only allowed to export the factory made merchandise out of the country. All merchandize that are found on those who violate this order, are to be confiscated and violators are to be expelled across the border. […].”
