Fifty Jewish Doctors Lose Vienna Posts

Download PDF for this date

Fifty doctors among the fifty-six Jewish medical men in Vienna municipal services must lose their posts and civil service status as a result of the German-Christian policy of the new city administration.

Efforts of a month by Vienna Jewish bodies, which included the intercession of the Vienna Jewish community with the government, failed to do more than secure the reinstatement of six out of the fifty-six originally marked for dismissal. Of all the Christian doctors employed, only three are in danger of dismissal.

Fifteen Jewish employes and three non-Jews were given notice of dismissal yesterday by the industrial district commission, a state body, although the number of Jewish employes in state institutions and services is negligible.
