Reichsgesetzblatt - page from the "law journal of the Reich" publishing the new regulations regarding the amendment of tenancy law - new anti-Semitic regulations against Jews in the Ostmark (Nazi term referring to annexed Austria) aimed at discriminating against Jews in what is related to landlord-tenant relations - May 13, 1939.
This issue published severe restrictions for Jews, stipulating that the Austrian law protecting tenants and regulating relations between landlords and tenants does not apply to Jews. There are several sections in the Austrian law regulating landlord-tenant relations. This issue published those same sections with restrictions when the tenant or landlord is Jewish. All the limitations relate to deteriorating the conditions for Jews. For example, the section stipulating an extension of the lease term cancels this extension if the tenant is Jewish, and stipulates a new restriction that a Jew who wants to extend the lease term will have to prove that there are difficulties in accommodation elsewhere, or that vacating the apartment would cause serious health damage, otherwise he will not be able to extend the lease. It was also stipulated that Section 575 for the protection of the tenant does not apply if he is Jewish. The decree also states that legal proceedings between a landlord and tenant, one of whom is Jewish and began before the new regulations took effect, will be retroactive and reviewed according to the new regulations appearing here, and other restrictions. The regulations are signed in print by Dr. Gürtner, Reich Minister of Justice, Franz Seldte, Reich Minister of Labor, and the Minister of the Interior.
The Reichsgesetzblatt was the official journal of the German Reich in which the regulations, arrangements and laws in force in the German Reich were regularly published. The last issue of the Reichsgesetzblatt appeared on April 11, 1945.
