Just one day after Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels declared that he no longer wanted to see employees with Jewish heritage in the film industry, the board of UFA decides to annul contracts with prominent Jewish employees "where possible".
Following that, the producer Erich Pommer, the directors Erik Charell and Ludwig Berger as well as the scriptwriters Franz Schulz, Robert Liebmann and Dr. Hans Müller are fired on the spot.
The feature film The Testament of Dr. Mabuse is banned
The film by director Fritz Lang is banned by the Board of Film Censors even before its scheduled release on this date. After meeting with Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels at the beginning of April, during which the latter is said to have offered Lang the “top position in German film”, the director goes into exile in Paris.
