Jews Arrested by Hungarian Police Charged with Entering Country Illegally

Download PDF for this date

In the course of a house-to-house raid by Hungarian police during the middle of last night, fifty Jews accused of entering Hungary illegally were arrested, the Budapest radio announced today.

Recently the Hungarian police seized many persons accused of smuggling Jews into the country from Slovakia and furnishing them with forged immigration permits. Since large-scale deportations of Slovakian Jews began, many who were able to elude the Slovakian authorities slipped across the border into Hungary.
