Magyars Routed by Jewish Athletes

May 7, 1923
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

A mob of Awakening Magyars of Newpest near here was routed by Jewish athletes, members of an educational league, as the former invaded the lecture hall and created a disturbance.

By way of avenging this “insult”, the Magyars returned to the club house next evening, smashed the windows of the adjoining synagogue, entered the house of the caretaker Moritz Neuman and thrashed him to unconsciousness.
