Download PDF for this date

Great alarm was caused in Jewish circles today when State Councillor Leopold Kunschak, clerical trade union leader, called a mass demonstration on the Jewish question for May 3. The Jews may ask the Director of Public Security to prohibit the meeting.

More than 100,00 copies were distributed of a proclamation calling the meeting. It declared: “We no longer relinquish the Jewish question. We warn and demand, away with the Jewish press, the Jewish economist and the Jewish industrialist. We leave them life and rights, but we want securely restored the nation’s possessions won away by corruption.”
