Socialist Leaders Deny Anti-semitism in Party

Download PDF for this date

Former Chancellor Renner, in a statement to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency representative today, denied that anti-Semitic tendencies were invading the ranks of the Austrian Socialists, declaring that the accusation of anti-Semitism among the Socialists in Austria was entirely unfounded. Former Minister Julius Deutsch also denied that anti-Semitism was rife in the Socialist Party and described the persecution of Jews in the labor sports organizations as a fairy tale. The newspaper “Sport Montage,” however, claims that Deutsch is not well-informed, because anti-Semitism has so penetrated the Socialist Party that big party positions are given only to those with Aryan faces.
