Hungarian Government Issues Compensation Decree for Jewish Small Landowners

Download PDF for this date

The Hungarian Government issued a decree today authorizing Jewish small landowners whose estates were confiscated under the 1942 anti-Jewish land law to apply for compensation.

The decree specifies that this authorization concerns only those Jewish landowners whose property did not exceed five hectares (about 12 acres). The applications for legal settlement are to be sent to the Cooperative Credit Institute of Hungary, the decree specifies.
