26th Anniversary of World War Ii Deportation of Jews from Yugoslavia is Observed

The 26th anniversary of the deportation of Jews from the Hungarian-occupied regions of Yugoslavia during World War II was marked by memorial services in the synagogue at Subotica. Another memorial service was held across the border in Szeged, Hungary. A gathering at the Jewish cemetery near Subotica was addressed by Dr. Lavoslav Kadelberg, president of the Federation of Jewish Communities of Yugoslavia. He warned that the dangers of neo-Nazism and anti-Semitism still lurked in Europe. The Jewish communities of Subotica, Novi Sad, Somber, Senta and other towns were decimated by the Nazis. In Szeged, a memorial monument was unveiled to the former rabbi, Dr. Imanuel Loew.
