Download PDF for this date

The authorities have ordered confiscation of the newspaper Vocses Esvidence, organ of the pro-Nazi Arrow-Cross organization, for publishing articles inciting against the Jewish religion.

Meanwhile, the Mayor of Budapest dismissed 21 omnibus workers for participating in an Arrow-Cross political demonstration during working hours. An organizer of the Hungarist Nazi Party and three others were arrested for inciting workers to join the demonstration. Municipal authorities also warned other city employers that a similar fate awaited employees connected with extremist organizations.
