“Dissatisfaction at the apparent unwillingness and lack of understanding of Austrian authorities displayed so far in the course of Austro Jewish negotiations” was expressed in a resolution adopted at a meeting of former Austrian Jews here.

Dr. F. R. Bienenfeld told the meeting that the delay in the negotiations caused suffering to Jewish victims of the Nazis in Austria, many of them elderly people.
