Vienna Paper Opens Public Subscription for Palestine Victims

Download PDF for this date

A public subscription for funds to aid the victims of the Palestine outbreak was opened by the “Neue Freie Presse.” The newspaper publishes a list of contributions which have so far reached 11,000 schilling. With the relief funds of the Zionists and the Jewish community, the total is expected to reach 100,000 schilling.

The Palestine Arabs are praised and congratulated “for their heroic actions against Jewish insolence” in bills posted throughout Vienna by the Hakenkreuzler, anti-Semitic organization. The bills urge the Christian population of Austria to “take a lesson from the Arabs and similarly settle these Jews in Austria.”
