Polizey-Oberdirection’) are not to return the official permits to the Jews, which are in any case only valid for specific circumstances/business dealings […] with which not only embezzlement could take hold, but also the intentions of […] Israelis to stay as long as possible in Vienna – against the existing regulations – would be too greatly encouraged if such permits would be valid forever. Those Israelis, if they should appear in Vienna with permits that have been returned to them, are to be immediately turned back if they are not able to provide proper documentations as to their characters and business dealings here.
