“Decree” issued by the Royal Court Police Authority (‘Polizeihofstelle-Decret’) [Austrian Empire; Present-day Austria]: “[…] Foreign Jews, to which also Polish and Galician Jews belong, are to be referred to the appropriate foreign-commission (‘Fremden-Commission’) […] when they arrive at the Jewish Office (‘Judenamt’) […] to whom they are to show proof of their present business dealings. The foreign-commission, therefore, has to note the length of time during which their stay is permitted […] and then […] send back the Jew to the Jewish Office so that he can pay the [necessary] taxes.
