Hungary Expected to Follow Moscow in Releasing Jewish Doctors


The release in Moscow of 15 doctors, including six Jews, accused of murdering top Soviet officials has aroused speculation here that the Communist satellite states, particularly Hungary, will follow suit. In Hungary some 30 doctors, mostly Jews, have been reported arrested in the past few months.

Meanwhile, the Hungarian Government has issued a new regulation providing a legal base for the expulsion of “undesirable” elements from the major cities. Under this policy many Jews have been removed from the cities to rural areas and to labor camps on large construction projects.
