Vienna (Aug. 19)
The Board of the Jewish Community of Vienna today announced that “the native population is treating the Jewish visitors in a way that gives grounds for no complaint.”
“The flood of disquieting reports,” the statement said, “which has been spread due to the events of July 25 have aroused a certain amount of nervous feeling among the Jews of Vienna. We have received a report according to which Jewish summer resort visitors have been exposed to personal molestation. This report determined us to make immediate inquiry of the appropriate authorities.
“On the ground of authentic reports received by us we are in a position to notify the Jewish public that there is absolute calm in all Austrian summer resorts and spas. The native population is treating the Jewish visitors in a way that gives no ground for complaint. The local authorities, hotel owners and boarding-house keepers are everywhere showing a sincere desire to please all visitors without distinction.
“There is no reason for any anxiety on the part of the Jewish public with regard to visiting Austrian resorts to spend their vacation.”
