Anti-semitism Spreads in Austrian Socialist Democratic Circles

Anti-Semitism is growing stronger here with Austrian Socialist Democrats disturbing Jews in Socialist Democratic districts. Eight of these districts have unanimously adopted protest resolutions demanding that the Socialist Democratic Party Executive clarify the Jewish question.

This is the first time that the Jewish problem is being debated within the Austrian Socialist Party. The labor newspaper, “Sport-Montag,” continues its fight against the campaign to expel Jews from Socialist organizations. The paper expresses the fear that the majority party will not take up the fight against anti-Semitism.
