“come to Austria” U.S. Tourists Urged

Download PDF for this date

A plea to American tourists to favor Austrian summer resorts has been received at B’nai B’rith National Headquarters here from Dr. Moritz Schnabl, president of the Austrian B’nai B’rith District.

The German Nazis, Dr. Schnabl explains, have been boycotting summer resorts in the western part of Austria to such an extent that those who make their living from such resorts fear they will be without tourist trade from Germany this summer.

“This situation is being used by the National Socialists in Austria to stir up enmity against our government,” Dr. Schnabl writes. “It is therefore in the interest of the Jews that the Austrian summer resorts be visited by tourists from other nations.”

“There is every reason to believe,” he added, “that the National Socialists will make no further progress (in Austria) but will lose many of their followers in consequence of the energetic measures which our government has taken.”
