In Austria, the Vienna edition of the Nazi newspaper Völkischer Beobachter announces a "death sentence" for the Austrian Jewish community, promising that all Jews would be driven out of Austria by 1942.

At the same time, the Deutsches Volksblatt urges Austrians to participate in a "pitiless anti-Jewish boycott" until all the Jews are forced to emigrate from Austria. At the time, the Nazi policy towards the Jews is still generally one of forced emigration and separation, not extermination.
