Austrian Govt. Charged with Inaction on Jewish Cemetery Desecrations

Download PDF for this date

The Jewish Documentation Center accused the Austrian Government today of doing very little to stop desecrations of graves of Jewish martyrs.

The Center cited the situation of 180 such graves near the Hungarian border which, the Center charged, was so neglected that local residents had turned the area into a municipal rubbish dump.
