In and around Vienna, Austria, Jews who had refused to convert to Christianity were burned on orders from Albert II the Magnanimous, Duke of Austria.

Their property is seized and sold, their synagogues destroyed, and contents given to universities. Jewish children are sent to monasteries to be educated and raised as Christians.
