“Royal Chamber Decree” issued by the Austrian Royal Chamber [Present-day Austria]: “[…] Jews, who own a factory (‘Landesfabrik’) in other countries may also open a office/branch in Vienna, if they use Christians or tolerated Jews to run/manage it (‘besorgen lassen’) […]” [Researcher’s note: The law did not restrict as to what kind of Christians were to be used, but it required that only Jews who had an official toleration permit be hired for this purpose.]
