Hungarian Jewish Waiters Appeal to Government

Download PDF for this date

A delegation of Jewish waiters today called upon Financ Minister Lajos Remenyi-Schneller in connection with an order forbidding issuance of licenses to restaurants employing Jews as waiters.

The delegation said that 600 Jewish waiters had already been dismissed because of the order and that another 200 who were away on army maneuvers would not be re-employed on their return.

“Aryanization” of the taxi industry has been proclaimed in an order forbidding issuance of licenses to Jewish taxi drivers.
