Austrian Resort Puts ‘aryan’ Rule in Force

Download PDF for this date

Emulating their German confreres, Austrian officials of Ramsau refuse to admit Jews to that famous summer resort, it was learned today.

In reply to an inquiry from a Jewish lady of Vienna, the Tourist Association of Ramsau writes as follows:

“This is an ‘Aryan’ summer resort. Jews are not wanted here. No hotels, inns or boarding houses or private residences in our resort will knowingly accept any Jews, for the ‘Aryan’ paragraph is in force here. ‘Non-Aryans’ will hardly find themselves comfortable here. We therefore advise you not to come to our beauty spot if you belong to the Jewish race.”
