Austrian Police Order Fails to Deter March to Grave of Dr. Herzl

Download PDF for this date

Austrian police today prohibited the annual march and procession of Austrian Zionists to the grave of Dr. Theodor. Herzl, founder of the Zionist movement, who is buried in a Vienna Jewish cemetery. Thousands of Zionists of all factions, however, came to the cemetery singly and in groups, formed a procession and marched past the grave in tribute to the Zionist leader.

The procession this year was marked by the presence of large youth groups of all the Zionist factions. Presence of a large member of Trumpeldorites, members of the Revisionist Zionist youth organization, evoked wide comment.
