Dear Readers,

December 05, 2002

The Austrian Press and Information Service in Washington, D.C. would like to introduce a new newsletter entitled "Jewish News from Austria."

The newsletter will inform you about events in Austria which concern not only Austrian Jews but may also interest the Jewish community and media in the United States and Canada, where a large number of Jewish refugees and Holocaust survivors from Austria have found a new home.

"Jewish News from Austria" will present articles and reports from Austrian newspapers and media which give an impression of the current attitude and climate towards Jews in Austria and elsewhere.

The Austrian Press and Information Service already issues the bimonthly newsletter "Austrian Information" which includes articles of interest to Jewish readers and it will continue to do so. "Jewish News from Austria" complements this publication.

Yours sincerely,
Christoph Meran
Austrian Press and Information Service
