Neutral Diplomats in Budapest Protest Resumption of Deportations of Jews

The Swedish foreign office revealed today that neutral diplomats in Budapest had appealed to the Hungarian Government to stop the deportations of Jews. Their appeal, which was made on August 22, followed reports that the deportations, which had ceased for a time, had been resumed.

The Hungarian Telegraphic Bureau today released the text of Premier Geza Lakatos’ proclamation to the country, disclosing that he stated that Hungary planned to continue its anti-Semitic policy, but on a “humane” basis.
