Underground Groups in Austria Are Not Opposed to Anti-semitism, Swedish Paper Reports

The existence of anti-Jewish groups within the anti-Nazi movement in Austria is reported today in the Swedish weekly newspaper Vi, organ of the cooperative movement.

The report, written by a Swede who just returned from Vienna after living there for two years, states that although there are several large groups in the resistance movement in Austria, the majority of them have no understanding of democratic ideas and are not opposed to anti-Semitism. Their opposition is based chiefly on hatred of Reich Germans, rather than totalitarian principles, the article points out.
