Bias is Increasing in Vienna Schools

Jewish parents here fear the approach of the new academic year and the increased anti-Semitic tendencies which the educational system is showing, especially in the high schools.

A year ago the system was still more or less in the hands of democratic functionaries, many of whom have given way to former German nationals who are now of Nazi confession, albeit ostensibly merely opponents of Marxism.

These teachers and professors employ every means to make the life of the pupil distasteful, and, finally, unbearable. Jewish parents, who in these difficult times exert every effort to keep their children in school, therefore have good reasons to fear these “pedagogues” who have made the “reduction of the Jewish influence” the aim of all their teachings.
