Suicides of Jewish refugees from Poland who had found haven in Hungary are reported today in a brief message which reached here from Budapest despite the strict censorship introduced by the German military authorities following their occupation of the country.
The message also reveals that a number of Jewish leaders are among the 632 prominent Hungarians arrested yesterday and today in Budapest by the Gestapo. It estimates that 150,000 Jewish, Polish, Serbian and other refugees are now threatened with deportation from Hungary, or with concentration camps under Gestapo supervision.
