Paul Sandor Taught Economics to Josef Franz (Jewish Telegraphic Agency)
Economics is not an entertaining subject, but when one finds himself in jail with nothing else to do, one is ever grateful to the man who introduced him to this branch of science.
Thus the Austrian Grand Duke Josef Franz spoke of the days when he, with Paul Sandor, Hungarian Jewish leader and at present a member of parliament, was in jail in Budapest during the Communist regime under Bela Kun.
In an interview with the representative of the “Wiener Journal” the Grand Duke praised the courage of Deputy Sandor who, he declared, had a great share in bringing relief to the Grand Duke and other members of the arisocracy who were imprisoned. “For hours and hours Sandor taught us the principles of economics; providing us with protection from boredom and with enlightenment,” the Grand Duke stated.
