Summary note
Between 1919-45, 131 Jewish veterinarians lived and practiced in Germany. With the rise of the Nazi regime, they were exposed to various forms of harassment. In April 1933 the German veterinary service was Aryanized and Jewish veterinarians lost their jobs, with the exception of those who had the status of "Frontkämpfer" (frontline fighters in World War I). Many of the Jewish veterinarians who were still in Germany in November 1938 were arrested after the "Kristallnacht" pogrom and sent briefly to concentration camps. The few students of veterinary medicine who had begun their studies in 1933 were allowed to take their exams in Germany, but they did not receive a license. With the 8th decree, based on the Nazi legislation of 31 January 1939, all Jewish veterinarians lost their licenses. 54 of the 131 known Jewish vets succeeded in emigrating in time. Twenty of them died in ghettos and concentration camps. (From the Bibliography of the Vidal Sassoon International Center for the Study of Antisemitism).
