Hungarian Jews Whose Land Was Expropriated by Pro-nazi Regimes Ask Compensation

Download PDF for this date

The Association of Jewish Land Holders has appealed to Premier Lajos Dinnyes for compensation for Jews who leased farming property on a share basis and who lost considerable fortunes during the war as a result of anti-Jewish laws expropriating their property.

Pointing out that nothing has been done as yet to relieve their plight and that many are living on charity, the Association demanded an advance on future compensation. The advance would amount to approximately 180 pounds of wheat for each acre which the owner rented.
