One Fined for Calling Man Jew; Another Unpunished

Download PDF for this date

For alleging that a man is a Jew, one Jew in Hungary has just been fined, while another one’s case has been dismissed. For alleging that the president of the Hungarian anti-Semitic organization, “Awakening Magyars,” Buday, is a Jew who has employed Jews, who has dined with a Jew at the same table and who has permitted a Jew to pay for his coffee, Julius Kinczler was sentenced by a court here to pay fifty pengos.

On the other hand the case brought by Professor Veszely against the publisher of the Jewish Lexicon, Dr. Rudolf Seltman, for describing the former in the Lexicon as being of Jewish origin was dismissed. Seltman declared that he meant no offense.
