Austrian Anti-semitic Union Split As Nazis Quit

March 4, 1938
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

A split in the ranks of the anti-Semite Bund (Anti-Semitic Union) today followed the dismissal of several members of its staff and the resignation of several members of its executive committee. A large number of members, practically all of them Nazis, quit the organization.

The Nazis were expected to attempt establishment of a body similar to the Bund, but it was considered doubtful whether the authorities would permit such an organization, since it could be utilized to camouflage Nazi propaganda.
