Nine Nazis Arrested in Vienna; Implicated in Bombing of Jewish Stores

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

Nine members of the Nazi Storm Troops were arrested here this afternoon after a sudden police raid on the Nazi Brown House.

The police search established that the gas bombs thrown into department stores owned by Jews last Saturday, causing their closing, were either of German or secret Austrian manufacture.

Many Jewish firms received telephoned threats today in connection with the boycott terrorization which the Nazis are conducting in an effort to prevent Christmas trade from benefiting Jewish business were hurled at the Jews by Nazi leaders.

The Nazi leaders admit the boycott propaganda against the Jews, inaugurated in an effort to prevent Christmas trade from benefiting Jewish business, is part of a campaign. They deny, however, responsibility for the bombs which were thrown into department stores owned by Jews, last Saturday, compelling them to close.

At the same time the Nazis in a communique warn the newspapers and even the government that they will enter suit for damages for the libelous accusation that they are responsible for the bombing attacks.
