Anti-semitic Propaganda Charged to Government by Austrian City Mayor

Anti-Semitic Officials Destroy Friendship Between Jews and Non-Jews, Mayor Spitzen Declares (Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

A direct charge of stimulating anti-Semitic propaganda was directed against the Austrian government by Herr Spitzen, Mayor of Eisenstadt.

In an interview published today by the Vienna press, the mayor charges the government continually sent to the Burgenland region only such officials who were known to be anti-Semites. These officials carried on a ruthless anti-Semitic propaganda and, by poisoning the minds of the Christian population, they have destroyed the friendship which existed between the Jews and non-Jews.
