Memorial Tablet Unveiled for Scottish Woman Who Refused to Desert Budapest Jewish Girls

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

A memorial tablet has been unveiled at the Scottish Mission here in honor of Miss Jane Haining who, at the outbreak of hostilities, refused to return to safety in Britain and desert a group of Jewish girls entrusted to her care at the Mission’s college here. Miss Haining died in a Nazi concentration camp where she was imprisoned for loyalty to her charges.

The Jewish weekly, Uj Elet, reports the looting of a synagogue at Sajoszentpeter, near Miskolc where three Jews were lynched several months ago. In an appeal to the government to take immediate action to halt anti-Jewish incidents, the newspaper pointed out that another anti-Semitic demonstration had occurred in the town last February. It charged that the fascists in the area have become bolder in their attacks against Jewish lives and property because they are not being punished.
