The situation for Jews in Austria deteriorates under Nazi rule, with a number of new measures making it more difficult for Jews to flee the nation. The post office announces that it will be opening and inspecting all international packages to check for smuggling money or other valuables. Banks are limiting how much money people can withdraw at any one time. Many wealthy Jews are being arrested for trying to leave the country with their valuables.

Jewish lawyers have been disbarred. Jewish doctors are barred from hospitals. Jewish stores have been stripped bare and, in some cases, placed under Nazi control. There are an estimated 200,000 thousand Jews and another 600,000 with a Jewish parent or grandparent in a population of 7 million, a much higher percentage than in Germany when the Nazis took power.
