Austria to Oust Jewish Doctors

of the Austrian government have proven unavailing. When the news of anti-Jewish measures spread abroad, the Austrian government brought pressure to bear on leading Jews to deny the stories and even threatened severe punishment for Austrian citizens guilty of spreading “atrocity” stories.

At the same time the Austrian government has officially continued to deny the existence of anti-Semitism in Austria. When Austrian officials recently attempted to negotiate a loan in London, they assured leading Jewish bankers that the government would rectify all measures taken against the Jews.
