“Decree” issued by the Austrian Government [Present-day Austria]: “[…] all Jews, who are coming to Vienna, are to be reminded – just as they enter – by the police-posts (‘Polizeyposten’) which have been established at [all] border-routes (‘Linien’) that they are now required to register with the Royal Imperial Chief Police Authority/Directive (‘k. k. Polizey-Oberdirection’) even if they are only going to stay 24-hours, or face inevitable inconveniences and – depending on the circumstance – punishment. […]”
