Paper Advises Austrian Jews to Greet Khrushchev with Reserve

Download PDF for this date

The Austrian Jewish community was advised today not to show any signs of friendliness or sympathy with Soviet Premier Nikita S. Khrushchev during his current visit in Austria.

The Austrian Jewish monthly publication, Neue Welt, reminded its readers in an editorial that the Jews in countries behind the Iron Curtain were still restricted in the observance of their religion. It noted that the Jews of the world would be grateful to the Soviet Union if it would permit the Jews to emigrate from that country.
