Download PDF for this date

The Foreign Ministry of Hungary has refused to hand over to West Germany the original documents purportedly showing that Dr. Alexander Toeroek, Bonn’s chief counsellor in the Embassy in Israel, had been a member of the Arrow Cross, the Hungarian Fascist Party, during the Hitler era, the West German Foreign Office declared here today.

Dr. Toeroek had been accused in the Communist press of Hungary of having been a Nazi. Efforts have been made by the Foreign Office here to obtain the alleged documentary evidence regarding Dr. Toeroek. But Budapest, according to officials here, has said, in refusing to hand over the documents: “It is not our affair.”
