The Jewish community of Budapest, in its official bulletin this week-end, expressed satisfaction with a forthcoming government order transferring abandoned or heirless Jewish property to the Jewish Rehabilitation Fund. The law which will transfer all property formerly owned by Jews to the Fund regardless of official proof of death of the former owner, was described by the bulletin to be better than that adopted by neighboring countries.
