Austrian Newspapers Warned Against ‘overt or Covert’ Anti-semitism

A warning against “overt or covert” anti-Semitism in the Austrian press was issued by the Austrian Union of Journalists, according to a report received here today. In a directive to its members, the Union stated:

“Overt or covert anti-Semitic tendencies bring great harm to the Austrian press, and are contrary to the freedom of the press guaranteed by our Constitution. One of the main tasks of the Austrian press must be the publicizing of information about the Hitlerite crimes against humanity.”
