The wiener-schnitzel, famous Austrian dish, was condemned here by the Siegester division of the Munich Nazi Party as a “Jewish concoction” and will be barred from the restaurant menus in Munich.

“Though we honor Viennese culture from Haydn to Schubert, there is no reason why we should eat a product which originally came out of the city’s most noisome Semitic quarter,” the Siegester Division of the Munich Nazi Party said.
