Michael Karolyi, President of the first Hungarian Republic and leader of the Free Hungarian movement here, today deplored the persecution the Hungarian troops are inflicting upon the Jews of Hungary and Poland.

Denouncing the regime of Admiral Horthy, which “twenty-two years ago instigated the white terror by spilling Jewish blood,” he pledged the Free Hungarians will “do justice to both perpetrators of these crimes and their innocent victims.”
