Budapest Terrorists Get Stiff Jail Terms for Synagogue Bombing

Download PDF for this date

Four Hungarian Nazi terrorists were given heavy sentences here today for bombing a synagogue last February 12, resulting in injuries to 20 Jews. Sentences ranged from three years’ hard labor to life imprisonment. A minor who was involved was sentenced to four years in a reformatory. The court found that the crime was premeditated and so planned that injury of a considerable number of victims was unavoidable.
