Hungarian Deputies Protest Anti-jewish Film

The German-made propaganda film, “Jew Suss,” is now showing in suburban as well as metropolitan theaters to hysterical audiences whipped up by the expanding propaganda campaign.

It is reported a whole company of soldiers, led by their officers, were shown the film gratis in the provinces. The picture is having such inflammatory effects that several Parliament deputies have written to Premier Paul Teleki urging a ban on its exhibition to avoid possible outbreaks. One deputy said he was writing because he was “ashamed to raise the question in the House.”
