Several Thousand Jews Reported Murdered in Budapest Pogrom; Jewish Homes Looted

Several thousand corpses of murdered Jews were carted out of Budapest in motor trucks following a pogrom by anti-Jewish terrorists on October 15, according to a reliable report received here today.

The report says that all Jewish houses -which are marked by a yellow Star of David – were attacked by fascist hoodlums. Shots were fired through windows, and residents were maltreated by gangs who broke into the premises and looted all valuables they could carry away.
