Vienna Nazis’ Bombs at Jewish Shop Doors

Download PDF for this date

Police today discovered explosives planted outside of many Jewish stores in Vienna in a plot to revive the reign of terror that ruled here during the height of the Austrian Nazi anti-governmental acts. The explosives were discovered before they had time to do any damage and the police embarked on a wide search for the malefactors. The police expressed their belief that the attempted attacks on the Jews constituted an integral part of the anti-Government Nazi program.

Chancellor Engelbert Dollfuss, in a radio address, assured that the Government would take relentless measures if the outrages did not cease.
