Download PDF for this date

The Slovak Cabinet, after hearing a report by Propaganda Minister Sano Mach, has approved a list of persons, mainly Jews, whose property will undergo “revision,” it was reported today from Bratislava.

The revision will be carried out by a special commission under the chairmanship of Mr. Mach which is also authorized to decide measures against the owners of the property after completion of the “revision.” It is understood the measure is designed to legalize expropriation of Jewish property, which hitherto has been carried out by administrative methods.

The same Cabinet meeting decided to introduce a numerous clausus on Jews in secondary schools.

Police in Bratislava sanctioned issuance of a Jewish weekly, Wochenblatt des Judentums.

Meanwhile, Prague dispatches quoted the newspaper Narodni Politika as reporting that a list of many thousands who lost their citizenship in accordance with the decree of Jan. 27 would be compiled after which all “stateless” persons would be requested to leave the protectorate of Bohemia-Moravia.

Reports from Hust said that all former representatives of Carpatho-Russia in the Czecho-Slovakian Parliament had been invited by the Hungarian Government to come to Budapest to sit in the Hungarian Parliament, except for representatives of the Jewish Party and the Czech Agrarians. The Government decree specifically mentioned that Dr. Chaim Kugel, former leader of the Jewish deputies, would not be admitted into the Hungarian Parliament.
