Germany Accuses Hungary of Treating Jews Mildly; Tension Reported Growing

Download PDF for this date

Relations between Hungary and Nazi-Germany are becoming more strained as a result of disagreement on the Jewish question, it is indicated in German newspapers reaching here today.

Inspired articles in the Nazi press charge Hungary with being “obstinate” and attribute this obstinacy to the fact that “a powerful Jewish minority” is now making itself felt in Hungarian political life. The articles all assert that Hungary is “not removing the Jewish influence from its economic and political system” and hint that as long as this is not remedied to the satisfaction of Berlin, relations between Hungary and Germany will not be normal.

Pro-Nazi Hungarian newspapers reaching here today also complain of the “inefficient action” against Jews. The Budapest newspaper, Uj Magyarsag, charges that enforcement of the anti-Jewish regulations in the book publishing field has been eased. It demands iron-clad application of these regulations, under which only six percent of the total output of books may be issued by Jewish publishers.
