The Hungarian Minister of Justice, Dr. Desci, and other high ranking Jewish members of the Hungarian Government were “purged” from their offices during the week-end, the London press reported today. The report says that an anti-Jewish drive is also going on in Hungary’s army.

Another report says that Jewish refugees arriving in West Berlin from the Soviet zone of Germany state that Jewish lawyers and physicians have been forbidden to practice in East Berlin.
