13. Principles guiding discretion in removing and excluding
individuals
The guiding principle in all these cases must be whether the
person under examination has or has not been more than a nom-
inal participant in the activities of the Nazi Party, in the light
of the definition in paragraph 2 of this directive. In cases of
doubt persons will not be employed or left in occupation of their
office if others are available who are politically more reliable but
administratively somewhat less suitable. Such persons will, where-
ever possible, be given only posts of minor responsibility until
they have proved themselves to be politically reliable. It is
essential that the head executive German officials at the levels
of Provihz, Regierungsbezirk and Kreis should be confirmed anti-
Nazis even if this entails the employment of persons less well
qualified to discharge their administrative duties.
