Leader of Group Which Bombed Budapest Synagogue Revives Party

Koloman Hubay, leader of the outlawed “Hungarist” (Nazi) party, has revived the old “Arrow Cross” group, the newspaper Virradat, organ of the extreme right, reported today. The Hungarist Party was suppressed by the new Government of Premier Paul Teleki in February following the bombing of the Dohany Street Synagogue. The “Arrow-Cross” party, founded by Major Ferenc Szalasi, who is now serving a prison term, was the leading Nazi group in Hungary. It had been in the forefront of the drive for the handling of Hungary’s Jewish problem on the German model.
