Boycott Demanded on Vienna Jews

Download PDF for this date

A call to boycott Jewish shops and not to go Christmas shopping in them was issued today to the Christian population here by the “Antisemitenbund,” an organization which embraces all anti-Semitic groups in the country, including members of the Government Party.

The “Antisemitenbund” also distributed proclamations throughout the city urging avoidance of Jewish firms in general. A demand that this proclamation be confiscated was submitted to the authorities by Jewish organizations.
