Download PDF for this date

An order issued by the Minister of the Interior, Franz K. Fischer, strictly prohibits the use of the swastika emblem in any form on the ground that the swastika is the emblem of an alien state. It is stated however that the real reason for the order is the growing swastika propaganda in Hungary which aims to supplant the present government of Premier Goemboes.
