Download PDF for this date

Two Hungarian Nazis, Albert Hajdo and Ludwig Hatvani, have been sentenced to serve a week in prison for having published an insulting anti-Semitic article in a Hungarian National Socialist newspaper.

Attempted anti-Semitic demonstrations during the trial proceedings were suppressed by the court. A number of fines were imposed and additional prison terms were threatened for those who would create any further disturbance.
