They were merely deprecated, but not forbidden, see 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antiqua-Fraktur_dispute - the german version of 
that page gives a bit more info.

Nowadays these kinds of fonts are often used to make stuff look older or 
to "look german", and _sometimes_ the desired effect is to look "like ~65 
years ago".
