Hungarian Authorities Rescind Citizenship of Jews

Download PDF for this date

The Budapest radio today announced that the citizenship of 150 Jews in Hungary had been revoked. No reasons for the measure were given. The broadcast did not explain whether those affected are Hungarian-born or naturalized citizens or people who automatically acquired their Hungarian citizenship when Hungary annexed the areas in which they were born.

A broadcast today from Bratislava, capital of the Nazi puppet-state of Slovakia, stated that 1,600 more Jews have been “evacuated” from the city to internment camps. The broadcast added that raids on Jewish homes took place during the week-end throughout Slovakia and that “much goods found there was confiscated.”
