October 24, 1956
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The Hungarian Ministry of the Interior has announced that it is considering releasing for emigration persons over 45 years of age who for one reason or another cannot support themselves in Hungary, it was reported here today from Budapest.

The Ministry announcement noted that such people would have to have relatives in another country who can provide them with a means of support and the prospective emigrant must be accepted by the country to which he wishes to go. This was interpreted as significant for Hungarian Jews who might wish to migrate to Israel.
