Anti-semitism Rampant in Communist Hungary, Budapest Paper Admits

Download PDF for this date

Anti-Semitism is still rampant in Hungary despite the “modern democratized form” of the Communist regime, it was reported in the Hungarian paper, Hadju Buhari, just received here from Budapest. The newspaper blamed the former leadership which made concessions to “bourgeois anti-Semitically tinged tendencies.”

Governments before the present Kadar regime never conducted adequate propaganda against anti-Semitism, the newspaper asserted. Today anti-Semitism still exists among workers, farmers and intellectuals.
