Download PDF for this date

The establishment of a National Committee to Aid Victims of Fascist Racial and Religious oppression was announced here today. Prof. Mario Conigliani is chairman of this committee.

The new organization will gather data on racial persecutions and will collect signatures from Italians opposed to the Fascist racial policy. It will ask the Italian government to support a campaign for moral and material aid for the victims of racial persecutions under Mussolini’s regime.

Hungarian newspapers reaching here today report that a city official named Joszef Voros was sentenced to four years penal servitude in Rimaszonabat for stealing confiscated Jewish property valued at 300,000 pengoes – about $60,000 – from a municipal warehouse.
