Anti-Semites Take to Desecrating Jewish Cemeteries in Roumania; Jewish Leaders Protest To Regency Council (Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Anti-Semitic student riots which were renewed several days ago continued at the Bucharest University.

Attacks on the Jewish students of the medical college were renewed on Friday. Several of the Jewish students were brutally beaten. The Jewish students submitted a complaint to the University Senate.

The Jewish cemetery at Piatraneance was desecrated several nights ago. The desecration shocked the Jewish community. Dramatic scenes were enacted when the inhabitants went to the cemetery to repair the graves of their kin.

A telegram of protest was despatched by the leaders of the Jewish community to the Roumanian Regency Council and to the Minister of the Interior. A moving plea was despatched by Rabbi Loebel to the Patriarch Miron, imploring the dignitary of the Greek Orthodox church to exercise his influence in order that the Jewish religious institutions be protected from vandalous attacks.

A report from Jassy states that the local police placed a strong guard of gendarmes around the Jewish cemetery there because of information received that anti-Semites plan to desecrate the cemetery.


The final scene in the reconciliation between American Jewry and Henry Ford, following his retraction of his anti-Semitic charges, the withdrawal from circulation of his book, “The International Jew,” and the change in the policy of his paper, “The Dearborn Independent,” was enacted on Wednesday in the office of Louis Marshall.

The Jewish Daily Bulletin learns that during his stay in New York this week Henry Ford called on Mr. Marshall, president of the American Jewish Committee, at his office, 120 Broadway, to express his friendly feeling and to confer on a matter pertaining to the liquidation of the remnants of the legend of Ford’s anti-Semitism in Europe.

The call was made by previous appointment. Prior to Mr. Ford’s arrival in New York an inquiry was made of Mr. Marshall as to whether the date of Mr. Ford’s call was convenient. Although no statement was issued as to the subject discussed, the Jewish Daily Bulletin understands that the result of the conference between Henry Ford and the president of the American Jewish Committee was satisfactory.
