Summary statement: Holy See is doing everything possible for the Hungarian Jews.
I received your telegram 2534. (1)
The Holy See has never neglected its serious concern for the Jews of Hungary for whom the Apostolic Nunciature and the Hungarian bishops were constantly labouring. (2) Indeed, to alleviate the suffering of the Jews, His Holiness has recently made available a generous sum of money to the Apostolic Nunciature. (3) It is now not possible to communicate with Budapest.
The Apostolic Nunciature in Berlin is concerned in this regard. (4)
