Recent complaints in Nazi newspapers about the “increasing audacity” of Jews in Hungary are merely “camouflage for further German measures against Hungarian Jews,” the Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter reports. It adds that despite Swedish intervention, thousands of Jews are still being deported from Hungary.

The paper says that a Hungarian scientist now residing in Sweden receives daily telegrams from Hungarian Jews appealing to him to procure safe-conduct and other papers for them from the Swedish foreign office.

The Bratislava radio reports that Jews confined in a concentration camp at Novaky have been liberated by Slovak guerrillas.
