Download PDF for this date

Conditions of Jewish life in Poland and Hungary were described here today by delegates to the World Jewish Congress executive session. The speakers were Polish Jews with the status of observers and Hungarian Jews who attended the parley as full delegates.

Both Polish and Hungarian speakers claimed that there was freedom of religion in their countries. The representative of Poland reported that “Die Folkstimme,” the Warsaw Yiddish daily, is received in every Jewish home in the country. He also underlined the need for coordination on matters of “Jewish culture with Jewish communities throughout the world.

(Anti-Semitism remains strong and alive in Hungary, the Hungarian newspaper Del Magyaror Szag reports. An article in the latest issue of the newspaper to arrive in Vienna today from Communist Hungary states that rumors are circulating in the country that all Jews will be deported to Israel.)
