Dear Readers,

April 28, 2003

We have extended our distribution to include new readers in Australia. Welcome to Jewish News from Austria.

In this third issue of our newsletter, we are bringing you mainly articles on the results publicized by the Historical Commission in Vienna. In addition, you will find information on the extension of deadlines for restitution applications.

You may also read about the work of the “Amcha” Association in Israel which continues to manage social welfare projects.

Also find out about the tradition established by the Jewish Welcome Center in Vienna inviting former Austrians to visit the city of their birthplace.

Yours sincerely,

Christoph Meran
