Jews Hindering Effective Hungarian Propaganda, Minister Complains

Download PDF for this date

Pointing out that there are about 1,000,000 Jews residing in Hungary at present, Dr. Stephen Antal, the Hungarian Minister for Information, declared this week that they constitute an obstacle to government propaganda in the country, the German news agency D.N.B. reported today.

“The attitude of the Jews in Hungary toward the war is well-known,” the Hungarian Minister is quoted as saying, “and this attitude makes effective propaganda difficult”.

The Bucharest correspondent of the Svenska Dagbladet reports today that the Rumanian authorities have announced that “half-Jews” whose property had been confiscated under the “Aryanization” laws may apply with 15 days for permission to demand the return of their possessions. The correspondent writes that this announcement may very likely herald a new course in Rumania’s anti-Jewish policy.
