Hungary Charged with Spreading False Reports on Mistreatment of Jews in Czechoslovakia

The Prague radio today stated that Czechoslovakia Jewish leaders have condemned false reports of alleged ill-treatment of Jews in Czechoslovakia as “obviously emanating from Hungarian sources.”

The Czechoslovak Home Minister today told the correspondent of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency that according to official statistics compiled by the authorities, the number of suicides in Prague from June 1st to the end of September only totalled 216, of whom two were Jews. This denies a previous report that about 7,000 repatriates, largely Jews, had committed suicide since their repatriation.
