Leaflets Threatening Jews with Death Appear in Hungarian Border Town

Anti-Jewish leaflets and slogans appeared this week on the walls of buildings in the center of the town of Sarkad, in south-eastern Hungary, on the Rumanian border, it is reported in the Radical Party weekly Haladas.

The leaflets were addressed to “our working brethren,” and charged that “while we lack bread, the Jews have cake; we are ragged and they are finely clad, disabled soldiers must beg, while they lack for nothing.” They concluded with a threat to wipe out the Jews.
