The Hungarian Consulate in Bratislava refuses to issue visas to Jewish citizens of Slovakia to proceed to Hungary, states the “Narodny Listy.”

The Consulate, it says, gives as its reason that foreign Jews are not wanted in Hungary. At the same time, it is still insisted on in Hungary that Slovakia is Hungarian only temporarily severed from the mother country by the Treaty of Trianon.
