2,000 Vienna Jews Protest Rise of New Nazism in Austria; Meeting Asks Gout. Action

Two thousand Vienna Jews, at a mass meeting here, have called on the Austrian Government for “action” against the neo-Nazi government.

The meeting is the result of a recent decision by the Vienna Jewish Community to initiate action against the new Nazi manifestations. Within the Community all political factions are united on the need for more drastic action, and a special “Actions Committee” has been formed. The body is charged with demanding that the government do something about the Nazis, and with whipping up public sentiment against the fascists.
