List of Austrian Jews


List of Austrian Jews

Austria first became a center of Jewish learning during the 13th century. However, increasing anti-semitism led to the expulsion of the Jews in 1669. Following formal readmission in 1848, a sizable Jewish community developed once again, contributing strongly to Austrian culture. By the 1930s, some 300,000 Jews lived in Austria, most of them in Vienna. Following the Anschluss with Nazi Germany, most of the community emigrated or were killed in the Holocaust. The current Austrian Jewish population is around 10,000.Fact|date=December 2007 The following is a list of some prominent Austrian Jews.Here German speaking Jews from the whole Habsburg Empire are listed.
