Jews of Hungary suffered a proportionately greater loss during Bela Kun’s communist regime than any part of the Hungarian population according to statistics published today by Albert Vary, a high Jewish official. Although there is a tendency to identify Jews with communism, M. Vary points out that figures show that of the 590 executions by communists there were 44 Jews, a percentage of 7.4 whereas the percentage of Jews towards the total population is 4###6.
