Vienna (Jul. 9)
The long exploded and legendary Protocols of the Elders of Zion has again made its appearance, this time as part of an official textbook which is being used as a book on general history for Austrian gendarmes, guards, police, and government officials, according to a story in the Vienna “Arbeiter Zeitung,” the organ of the Social-Democratic party.
Inquiries at the headquarters of the police department by the Jewish Telegraphic Agency brought a statement that the textbook is not used in Vienna and is entirely unknown there. The government offices assured the Jewish Telegraphic Agency that the textbook is not officially used in any of the officers’ schools nor in the training schools for the gendarmerie and the guards. In official circles the anti-Semitic book is considered a private work without official approbation.
Remarking that the book was printed at the state publishing house of the Austrian province of Styria in Graz, the “Arbeiter Zeitung” gives the following astounding quotations from the so-called history textbook: “Jewry is the only European profiteer…. until the 18th century it was confined in Eastern Europe to dirty quarters but lately it grew powerful living on the income from other peoples…. Jewish capital rules the victorious and conquered nations alike and controls the world press and the most important means of communication like bloody vampires at the throats of cultural nations…. the Elders of Zion for centuries prepared for the World War against the Central Powers…. Clemencau, Lloyd George and the others are either Jews or related to Jews or belong to Masonic lodges under Jewish influence…. the revolutions in Russia, Hungary and Bavaria were directed against Aryans while Jewish capital remained intact and the same thing will happen when the world revolution comes….”
