(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Further details of the recent anti-Semitic excesses which took place in Bucharest are disclosed today by the Roumonian Jewish paper “Curierul Isrealit.”

The paper reports that the anti-Semitic students desecrated the synagogue, demolished the Ark of the Covenant and committed other acts of vandalism.

The paper asks whether it is worth while for the Jewish community of Bucharest to protest against these outrages in view of the fact that previous protests led to no results.
