“Decision/Regulation” of the [City] Council of Frankfurt [Present-day Germany; Free Imperial City of Frankfurt/Holy Roman Empire]: “[…] No Christian, not even those who have guest-hostels/hotels shall accommodate a foreign Jews, except during fairs, local protected-Jews, however, are never to offer foreign Jews a place to stay […] without having previously attained permission from the Schatzungsamt*. […]” [Researcher’s note: While the above decision of the City Council regulates how foreigners are to be accommodated in general, the excerpt translated here is addressed to specifically Jews. *Schatzungsamt was the office that handled taxes and oversaw a registry which controlled the number of foreigners in the domain.]
