Mass Expulsion of Jews from Vienna to Lublin Will Be Resumed

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

Mass expulsion of Jews from Vienna to the Lublin District in Nazi-Poland will soon be resumed, according to reports received here today.

The reports state that the Nazi authorities in the Reich, after abandoning the “Lublin scheme” several months ago, have come to the conclusion that they must revive it in order “to clear Vienna of the 45,000 Jews still there.” Among the reasons advanced for this change of policy is the excuse that emigration of Jews from Vienna has greatly decreased since the United States issued new visa regulations last July, also that virtually all consulates of the countries of immigration have been closed down in Vienna, so that the Jews of Austria can get practically no visas to overseas countries.
