LONDON (Jan. 24)
The German UFA Film Company has, with the cooperation of the German Ministry of Propaganda, obtained the consent of the Hungarian Government to produce a “ritual murder” film based on the Tisza-Eszlar blood libel cases of 1882, when the Jews of the Hungarian village of that name were charged with the murder of a young servant girl. The Jewish Chronicle reports. The film will be used by the Nazis for anti-Jewish propaganda purposes.
The fact that the Tisza-Eszlar case against the Jews finally collapsed and that all the accused were acquitted is, of course, of no concern to the Nazis. The film will uphold the anti-Semitic blood-libel theory.
