Roumania Violates International Minoritles Treaty with Regard to Jewish Rights

The national minorities in Roumania will have the right to establish schools of their own, with their own national language as the language of instruction, according to an amendment passed today by the Roumanian Parliament at the second reading of the educational law.

In reply to a question asked by Deputy Pistiner as to what the status of the Jewish minority in Roumania would be, Roumanian Foreign Minister Duca stated that the Roumanian language is considered to be the mother tongue of the Jewish minority in Roumania, and that, therefore, the instruction in the Jewish schools will have to be carried on in Roumanian.
