Prosecution Set
For Skinheads

Budapest (JTA) — A Jewish
girl who was stabbed and in-
jured by neo-Nazi skinheads
has become the subject of na-
tional attention after
Hungarian Interior Minister
Peter Boross made a special
point of promising punish-
ment for the offenders.
Mr. Boross said it was
unacceptable for skinheads
wearing swastikas to be at-
tacking people on the streets
of Budapest. Speaking in
Parliament, Mr. Boross said
that "this Nazi symbol has
-already cost hundreds of
thousands of lives to the
Hungarian nation."
The 17-year-old victim of
the stabbing, who did not
want her name released,

The girl told reporters she
received warning letters

her classmates in school she

The girl, whose grand-
mother is a survivor of the
Auschwitz death camp, is

guards, paid for by the local
Jewish community.

more than 40 years after the
Holocaust in Hungary, my
daughter must go to the
school escorted by armed
guards, because she — as a
Jew — does not feel safe to
- go alone after what happen-
ed to her a week ago!" the
girl's mother told JTA.
An administrator in her
school described the victim
as a handicapped girl who
lives with her mother in
modest circumstances.
Discussion about the inci-
dent in Parliament became a
bit heated after one member,
Izabella Kiraly, defended
skinheads, saying they were
"young and good boys of the
Hungarian nation."
Ms. Kiraly has previously
called for Hungary to rid the
educational system of
"foreign spirit."
The Budapest office of the
World Jewish Congress has
expressed its concern over
this incident to the speaker
of the Parliament, George
