Jul. 11, 1687

“Expulsion Decree” issued by Countess Maria Maximiliana of Sinzendorf [Present-day Austria and Germany; County of Sinzendorf]: “[…] 7) […] that they (her successors/heirs) shall never permit any Jews, either as subjects or under any other pretext to live or stay in this dominion of ours for eternity. […]” [Researcher’s note: The countess even pleads in her testament on 7/12/1687 to her husband to prohibit Jews from settling in her domain in honor and his love to her and to ensure that none of her heirs do either.]
