Nazi Demonstration in Vienna Passes Quietly

Download PDF for this date

The greatest precautions to safeguard the Jewish districts and cafes frequented by Jews were taken last night by the police department to prevent any possible out-break by Nazis demonstrating in a huge torch light procession to celebrate Adolf Hitler’s victory in Germany.

Two hundred and fifty thousand Nazis, including numerous state officials, participated in the parade. The usual abuse of the Jews, and the shouts of “Judaea Perish!” were conspicuously diminished.

Large police details accompanied the procession through the entire route. Several clashes were reported to the police department.
