The Jewish population in Carpatho Russia, a province formerly belonging to Hungary and now to Czechoslovakia, is being terrorized by Hungarian Irredentists, it was brought out in an interpellation submitted to the government by Deputy Necas.

The deputy inquired as to what the government intends to do to protect the Jewish population in the region against the threats of the Hungarian Irredentists. The Hungarians told the leaders of the Jewish population in Carpatho Russia that when the province will be reoccupied by the Horthy troops, sharp reprisals will be directed against the Jews in case they will not support the Hungarian Irredenta.
