Prepares Tome on Hungarians

Ministerial Councillor Dr. Karl Gerloczy is at work on a monumental volume containing all important laws, decrees and statutes governing the legal status of Jews in Hungary, according to a report in the Hungarian Jewish weekly, Zsido Elet. The volume will contain 700 pages and will include a complete commentary.

Dr. Gerloczy, it was announced, hopes to conclude his work before the opening of the Hungarian Jewish congress next year, at which new laws governing Hungarian Jewry will be passed.

His book is expected to be a valuable historical document and will clarify the present badly defined status of Jews in Hungary. Dr. Gerloczy’s book is expected to facilitate administration of all official work in connection with Jewish religious affairs under the Ministry of Public Worship and Education.

Dr. Gerloczy has been an official of the ministry for the last thirty-five years and is a recognized expert on Jewish affairs in Hungary.
