Hungarian Senate Adopts Law Aiding Jewish Aliens’ Status

Download PDF for this date

The Hungarian Senate today adopted a law regulating the stay of aliens and those who are not citizens of any country by virtue of the post-war map changes. The law improves their treatment and provides for their protection against injustice. The law is apparently designed to counteract last week’s complaints in the House of Deputies by two Social-Democratic members that Jewish aliens had been urged to accept Catholicism as a means of obtaining Hungarian citizenship.
