Download PDF for this date

The Cabinet was reported today to have decided on important modifications in the proposed new anti-Jewish law, under which Jews would-be limited to 7 per cent participation in Hungary’s economic rural life.

The Catholic Bishop of the Waitzen Diocese, which includes Budapest, has prohibited discussion of the Jewish problem from the pulpit, declaring a solution should be to the Government and politicians. The national executive committee of Catholic Action has issued a pamphlet denouncing totalitarianism and violent methods of solving the Jewish problem.
