“Ordinance” issued by the Austrian Government [Present-day Austria, Czech Republic; House of Habsburg-Lorraine]: “All Jews are prohibited from changing their previously taken name or face a fine of 12 Ducats. They are also to be told that if they change their place of residency, they are to have a permission slip from the place they’re leaving (and in which they are protected) (‘Schutzort’) as evidence to turn over to the (authorities in the) new place. The local authorities are also to be prohibited and fined 6 Ducats if they accept a Jew – may he be single or married – without such a permission slip.”
