(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

An organization “to defend Austria against Judaism” was called into being here for the purpose of fighting not only Jews but even Christians who do not take the program of the anti-Semitic parties seriously.

In an announcement issued by the founders of the new organization it is stated that not even the introduction of a numerus clausus limiting the number of Jewish students in all educational and vocational institutions in Austria would satisfy its sponsors. A permanent fight must be waged until “Judaism is driven out of the body politic in Austria.”
