Download PDF for this date

Seventeen more Jewish doctors working in the Department of State Insurance were dismissed today as the result of the government policy to oust Jewish employes from State positions.

The Association of Jewish Doctors in Austria made immediate representations to the authorities. As a result of these representations some of the notices for dismissal were temporarily rescinded.
