Protests Ban on Jewish War Heroes from Veterans’ Union

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

Protests that not only are ordinary Jewish war veterans barred from membership in the Ex-Servicemen’s Union but even those Jewish ex-servicemen who earned decorations for bravery under fire are excluded were made today by the Jewish deputy, M. Fabian, before a parliamentary commission investigating the matter.

Recalling the names of such Jewish war heroes as General Zoeld, Colonel Bleyer and M. Stella, who were honored by Hungary for war-services, Deputy Fabian complained that their applications for membership in the Ex-Servicemen’s Union have been rejected.
