“Governmental Decree” issued by the Austrian Government [Present-day Austria]: “[…] the Viennese Magistrate is to be visiting the Viennese suburbs from time to time […] since it is always possible for Jews to be sneaking in [and through the area], [and] the police should examine these hideouts often and unexpectedly (without warning), in which unlawfully present Jews tend to stay and which cannot be entirely unknown to the Royal Imperial Chief Police Authority/Directive (‘k. k. Polizey-Oberdirection’), and to proceed against these unsuitable Israelis who have entered and are staying in Vienna with the utmost strictness/legal force of the office.”
