600 Linz Jews Ordered to Quit Homes

Determined to purge Linz, shrine of Austrian Nazism, of TS Jewish population, the gestapo (secret political police) today ordered the entire Jewish colony of 600 to move out by the end of september. The order means virtually exile, since practically no German community will accept Jews as new inhabitants. Unless provision is MADE FOR THEIR ADMISSION TO OTHER LANDS, THE LINZ JEWS, LIKE THOSE OF THE BURGENLAND PROVINCE, WILL BE MADE THE SCAPEGOATS OF BORDER OFFICIALS, FACING IMPRISONMENT WHEREVER THEY GO.
