“Decree” of the Royal Court Chancellery [Present-day Austria]: “It also goes against any decency (it is out of the question), to grant temporary residency to those Israelis, who have completed their medical studies (well) and who are suitable to be employed as assistant doctors (‘Secundärzte’) or surgeons (‘Wundärzte’) in the local lazaretto* of Vienna […] or [just as well] to allow [this to] other Israeli co-religionists, who are staying (are present) temporarily for significant reasons in Vienna to carry out their [legal] affairs/businesses; in such cases, a toleration [permit] is out of the question.” [Editor’s note: According to merriam-webster.com on 3/19/2021, a lazaretto is “an isolation hospital for people with infectious diseases, especially leprosy or plague.”]
