“Order” of the Emperor Leopold I [Present-day Austria]: “[…] Because a number of Jews are required to move away from Vienna, their active and passive debt shall, therefore, be taken up and processed in a manner of equity […]” [Researcher’s note: (“…und der Billigkeit gemäß verfahren werden”) The Imperial Court had decided not to expel all Jews at once but in stages.]
