This probably won't get much attention (unless the kind going on in two other threads). But some of you might be familiar with this person:

The French underground did a lot of heroic work. But go ahead and call all the French cowards.

Never heard of her, but it sounds like she did some great work.

I have to ask, though. Storm troopers whipping jews in Austria in 1933? The Germans didn't have Austria in 1933 and were barely in power in Germany. Is the date wrong in the article or was there pre-war stuff going on that I didn't know about? Were there Austrian nazis in positions of power in Austria in 1933?

She wasn't French, she was Australian. The French still suck.

I found this:

By the time Hitler wins power, in 1933, there is already a sizable Nazi party in Austria. In July 1934 they overreach themselves in attempting a coup which has disastrous results. Although they seize the chancellery in Vienna and murder the chancellor, Engelbert Dollfuss, the putsch ends in their surrender and execution. Hitler, delighted at the first news of their action but not himself actively involved, finds himself compelled to disown them.

Could the article in the OP be referring to Austrian Nazis as Stormtoopers?

Sounds like there were indeed Nazis in Austria at that early date, though it also sounds like "stormtroopers" may not have been the correct description for them. I'll cut her a break, though, since she engaged in firefights with Nazis.
