Vienna's school board is investigating the city's Saudi Arabian school for reportedly teaching anti-Semitism in a history class.

The probe is linked to a report by an Austrian news magazine.

The magazine says a history book used by the school contains anti-Jewish material. It quotes the book as allegedly describing Freemasons as "a Jewish, secret, subversive organization focused on guaranteeing control of the world by Jews."

School board official Matias Meissner said Monday the board is looking into the allegations. A woman answering the phone at the school refused to comment.

The school could lose its status as a recognized educational institution if the allegations are proven.
