In Vienna
  Vienna (AP)—Vienna Jews said to-

suicide in despair as all of the 21
synagogues in the city suffered to-
tal or partial destruction at the
hands of mobs.
  One syndagogue was blown up.
Three others were wrecked.
Storm  troopers  brought  truck
loads of Jews to Doliner st where
they were put to work tearing down
another synagogue piece by piece.
  Numerous male Jews were ar-
rested as they waited outside the
British consulate seeking visas to
England. Women were not detained.
  Storm troopers said those ar-

  The Zirkus Gasse synagogue,
which was raided early in the day,
was destroyed by dynamite by noon.

timated at more than 10,000,000
marks ($4,000,000).
