Jews Ousted from Market in Hungarian Town

Download PDF for this date

Jewish market place vendors have been forbidden to ply their trade in any part of this town.

The Jews were first obliged to vacate the market places. They then took up their trade in empty lots on the strength of business licenses which they had been permitted to retain. Officials ruled, however, that this was a violation of the anti-Jewish laws and that the licenses were automatically voided when the Jews were driven from the market places. It is now impossible for these Jews to carry on their trade.
