Hitler marched into Vienna (111 March 12- and it was ol) March 12 l(ack in 142l that severtd hun(h'ed Jews were pub- licly 1)urned in Vienna as the l'mt step in the destruction of the Vien- nese Jewish community of the Mid- die Ages. On March 24, 1420, all the Jews of Vienna were imprsioned. On March 1, 1670, the Jews of Vienna were again ordered exi)elled. On March 13, 1848, the outbreak of the Austrian revolution led to pogroms in Vienna.
