Mass Deportation of Jews from Hungarian City Reported

The wholesale deportation of Jews from Szeged, second largest city in Hungary, was reported here today by the London Daily Telegraph in a dispatch from Yugoslavia. Szeged is located just across the border from Yugoslavia.

The report says that Jews fit for work have been sent to slave labor camps in Russia where they “face slow mass extinction.” The others are said to have been dispatched to concentration and labor camps in the eastern districts of Hungary, near Russia.
