Jews in Hungary Deported from Frontier Towns into Interior

Jewish families are being deported from military and industrial centers in Hungary, it was learned here today. The deportations take place mostly from towns near the Czechoslovak, Yugoslav, Austrian and Rumanian frontiers.

The deported Jews are sent into the interior of the country to work on farms and labor projects. There they must report regularly to special police authorities. Most of them are ordered to leave their home towns on short notice. A careful check is made by the police whether any have ever received aid from the Joint Distribution Committee.
