There are only 847 Jews in Austria living outside Vienna, aside from Jews in DP camps, according to a study made public here today.

The largest number, 320, live in Salzburg; 210 are in Graz; 163 in Linz, and 154 in Innsbruck. Before the Anschluss there were 60,000 Jews living in these and smaller cities and towns in the Austrian provinces.
