Paris (Jun. 15)
(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)
The French League of Human Rights has made public the text of the letter of protest which it addressed to Vintila Bratiano, Roumanian Premier, on the subject of the anti-Semitic excesses committed in December 1927 at Oradeamare.
The letter was written at the request of the Council for the Rights of Jewish Minorities. Besides giving a summary of the events which occurred at Oradeamare and quoting facts, the Secretary of the League calls the attention of the Roumanian Government to the absolutely inadequate measures taken with a view to putting a stop to the growth of anti-Semitism in Roumania. The letter concludes with the hope expressed by the League that “in view of the excesses of Oradeamare, the Roumanian Government wll consider it expedient to take the necessary measures both with a view to punishing the culprits and to preventing a reoccurrence of the sad events.”
