Ati-semitic Murder List is Found by Vienna Police

July 5, 1923
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Fourteen anti-Semites involved in a wholesale murder plot have been arrested as the result of the discovery by the police of a “murder list” prepared by a group of terrorists of Hakenkreuzler affiliations. The murder list contained the names of a number of Jews and liberals generally whom the anti-Semites planned to do away with.

The discovery of the list was made as the result of police investigations of the slaying recently in a forest near Vienna of Konrad Karger.

Karger and his assassin were both members of the anti-Semitic National Socialists. The murderer told the police that Karger was a “traitor to the cause”.

The terrorist band is said to number seventy members.
