Jews Hit Austria’s Failure to Indemnify Victims of Nazism

Representatives of Austrian Jews and Jews from Austria now living in the United States, Israel and Britain charged today that three years after the Austrian State Treaty went into effect the Austrian Government has still failed to make good for the claims of victims of Nazism. A two-day parley of the World Council of Jews from Austria and the Federation of Jewish Communities of Austria also urged here that action be taken to safeguard the rights of Austrian persecutees under Bonn legislation indemnifying victims of Nazism.
