Vienna Nazis Introduce Motion to Bar Schechita

Download PDF for this date

The Nazi fraction in the Diet introduced a motion today calling for the prohibition of Schechita.

The motion asks that Schechita be prohibited under the regulations for the prevention of cruelty to animals. The Nazis point that the Diet of Salzburg has prohibited Schechita under this regulation.

The Nazis, it is believed, will be unable to secure a majority for their motion inasmuch as the Social-Democratic fraction will not support it.
