Expelled Jewish citizens and their families visited Vienna from April 23 to 30. The group was invited and looked after by the Jewish Welcome Service Vienna. Also among the invitees was the blogger “Freud’s Butcher”, who commented on her impressions of Vienna, sometimes with humor.
The guests came from the USA, Israel, New Zealand and Uruguay. During their stay, the group was received by Chancellery Minister Thomas Drozda in the Federal Chancellery and by Vienna’s City Councilor for Culture Andreas Mailath-Pokorny at City Hall. The program also included visits to Jewish institutions. The visit program of the Jewish Welcome Service is financially supported by the City of Vienna and the Republic of Austria.
Also among the guests was Edie Jarolim, who operates a highly regarded blog under the name “Freud’s Butcher”, on which she has also posted the (highly personal) impressions of her visit to Vienna.
