Ghetto Edict in Vienna

Download PDF for this date

The Nazi authorities in Vienna have issued a new order to concentrate the city’s Jews in a few ghetto districts, it was reported here today. These districts are the Leopoldstadt, Alsergrund and Brigittenau. Jewish owners of flats in these districts were ordered to accept as lodgers Jews evicted from apartments in other districts. No room in a Jewish flat may be occupied by fewer than two persons, except for the owner of a flat, who is allowed to have a room for himself.
