1,400 Exiles Marooned on Rumanian-hungarian Frontier

Download PDF for this date

Some 1,400 Jewish exiles from Transylvania, men, women and children, are still in the “no-man’s-land” on the new Rumanian-Hungarian frontier, suffering appalling hardships, it was reported today. The Rumanians are refusing to let them remain and the Hungarians will not admit them.

The men live in tents and the women, children and aged people are herded together in a few huts, the report said. The impoverished Jewish communities of Temesvar and Arad have done their best to supply food, but are unable to do much. Jewish leaders in Budapest unsuccessfully approached the Hungarian Government to allow the deportees to enter Hungary pending arrangements for their settlement overseas, it was said.
