The notorious Hungarian war camp at Zalagerzeg is still in existence, despite repeated assurances of the government that it would be closed. Among the 794 Russian war captives in the camp there are 135 Jews.

Attempting to explain its failure to close the camp the government declares that there is no place to send the prisoners. The captives have no passports, the government adds, as Russia refuses to readmit them.
