“Governmental Circular” issued by the Austrian Government [Present-day Austria, Czech Republic]: “[…] Jews who have exceeded the time set in their passports are to be treated like a vagabond. […] the Jewish communities are to be reminded firmly and emphatically to report all Jews who are found to be roaming and hiding [in their communities] without permission, or to be responsible for the costs of their expulsion […] and each housefather should be warned that any Jew[ish]-family who is found guilty of such an illegal agreement or even concealment, is to lose his/their permit to stay in the country retroactively without exception/mercy.”
