Download PDF for this date

Hungary’s third anti-Jewish law, which is nearing completion, provides for mass emigration of all Jews under 50 years of age, the German wireless reported today in a broadcast to Yugoslavia.

The emigration will be financed by Jewish capital, which will be retained in Hungary, the report said. The broadcast asserted that Hungary had already contacted other governments desiring to “solve the Jewish problem throughly” by mass emigration.
