Vienna to Pay Pensions to Former City Employes Who Fled Nazis

Download PDF for this date

The Vienna municipal government decided today to honor all applications for full pensions, regardless of when received, from Jews who were employes of the city until the Nazis came to power and are now living abroad.

This decision reverses an earlier ruling which set a deadline, since passed, after which pension applications would not be accepted.
