    Background: A RASH OF TERRORISM BY NEO-NAZI ELEMENTS - INCLUDING ATTACKS ON JEWS, SYNAGOGUE DAUBING, ANTI-JEWISH POSTERS AND: DESECRATION OF CEMETERIES - HAS LED TO WIDE PUBLIC CONCERN IN AUSTRIA.

    THE RECENT ARREST OF THREE UNIVERSITY STUDENTS SIGNING OLD NAZI WAR SONGS IN THE CENTRE OF VIENNA PUT POLICE ON THE TRACK OF A SECRETE NEO-NAZI ORGANISATION WITH 1,000 MEMBERS. IT WAS FOUND THAT THE MOVEMENT HAD NOT CONFINED ITS ACTIVITIES TO AUSTRIA, BUT HAD ALSO TAKEN PART IN A WAVE OF TERROR BOMBING IN THE ITALIAN SOUTH TYROL.

    MOST IF ITS MEMBERS BELONGED TO TRADITIONAL STUDENT FRATERNITIES STILL STANDING FOR THE UNION OF ALL GERMAN-SPEAKING PEOPLES INTO A COMMON REICH. AMONG A DOZEN PEOPLE ARRESTED FOR SUSPECTED NEO-NAZI ACTIVITY WERE NOT ONLY STUDENTS BUT ALSO A HIGH GOVERNMENT OFFICIAL AND AN ASSISTANT UNIVERSITY LECTURER.

    THREE DAYS AFTER THE ARRESTS, A GROUP OF VANDALS DESECRATED THE JEWISH CEMETERY AT INNSBRUCK, KNOCKING OVER AND DAMAGING HEADSTONES ON ALL BUT THREE GRAVES.
