40 Hungarian Zionist Leaders Arrive in Israel; Some Released from Detention Camps

Forty Hungarian Zionist leaders, some of them recently released from Communist detention camps, arrived here today along with 750 other immigrants from Hungary, Germany and Austria and 500 from North Africa.

Among the newly-arrived Hungarian Zionist leaders were M. Fraenkel, vice president of the Hungarian Zionist Organization and Chief Rabbi A. Zisman, former head of the Orthodox communities in Hungary.

Ambulances waiting at the pier drove 64 immigrant invalids to hospitals in Tel Hashomer, Mahaneh Israel, Magdiel and Beit Sieff, while 14 mental cases were removed to the government hospital at Acre.
