Two Hungarian Refugees Convicted in Sweden of Threatening Jew

Download PDF for this date

One recent Hungarian refugee to Sweden drew a 30-day sentence this week-end and a second a fine for calling their Swedish teacher a “Jewish swine” and threatening to kill him. A third defendant was acquitted.

In court, the defendants openly admitted that they were Fascists and anti-Semites. The court’s findings, however, were officially based on threats against a public servant.

The 200-odd Hungarian Jewish refugees in this country report frequent instances of anti-Semitism among the Hungarians.
