Hungarian Police Investigating Distribution of Anti-semitic Leaflets

Hungarian state police are studying anti-Semitic leaflets being distributed among workers of the Cespel plant, near Budapest, one of the largest industrial centers in the country, according to reports reaching here from the Hungarian capital.

The leaflets allege that the Hungarian Government is controlled by Jews and describe the State Security Police as a “playground for unemployed Jewish boys.” The Hungarian police are said to have received anonymous letters stating that the leaflets were printed by Russian agents. Although 150 workers at the Cespel plant have been questioned, it is reported, police are still unable to track down those who distributed the leaflets.
