The belief that Nazi spies kidnaped his wife, a German-Jewess, was advanced here today to the police by M. Magyessi, a Hungarian, who claims that she was lured to Germany from this city last Wednesday.

Mrs. Ruth Magyessi, a well known German composer and musician who left Germany after the Nazis came into power, was last seen here on Wednesday leaving her home to visit a woman friend. She has not returned since. The Danish police today started an investigation into the theory of her husband that she was kidnaped by Nazis for political reasons.
