Following in the footsteps of their Nazi masters, the Hungarian occupational troops have started a campaign of anti-Jewish terror in the territory occupied by them on the Russo-Hungarian frontier, it was reliably reported here today.

The report states that Jews are being arrested, tortured and executed by the Hungarian occupational administration in Stanislawow and other towns in Galicia which fell into Hungarian hands. In Stanislawow the Hungarian administration proclaimed a special curfew for Jews and arrested 160 Jewish men in addition to taking many prominent Jews as hostages. Three of the arrested Jews were executed.

A special concentration camp for Jews has been established by the Hungarian authorities in a village near Delatyn. The Jews there are being confined under the most horrible conditions, and tortured by bestial types of Hungarians who have been appointed as supervisors of the camp. In some towns occupied by the Hungarians all Jews, including women, are being taken for forced labor. In Nadworna the local rabbi was manhandled, while other Jews there were subjected to degrading treatment, the report informs.
