The municipal government of Vienna dismissed a number of Jewish physicians and other workers.

The Christian Socialist party, leading group in the present coalition government, has openly demanded the complete elimination of all Jews from public and professional life in Austria, without “the violence employed in Germany.”

According to recent reports, suicides among the impoverished Jews of Austria have increased at a tremendous rate, particularly among the formerly well-to-do professional and merchant classes deprived of all means of livelihood.
