Download PDF for this date

The entire Jewish population in the township of Trusheny, in the Kishinev district, arrived in Kishinev today in great haste, fleeing from their home town because of the arrival of twenty-five anti-Semitic students who called on the peasants to kill the Jews.

The correspondent of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency was informed by telephone today from Kishinev that not a single Jew remains in Trusheny because the Jews fear for their lives. The Kishinev regional police have been urged by local Jewish leaders to take urgent measures to make possible the safe return of the Jewish refugees to their homes in Trusheny.

Dr. M. Schaffer, executive member of the Union of Roumanian Jews, today submitted an official memorandum to Victor Cadere, chief of the Roumanian secret police, about the recent events in Bereshty which were yesterday reported by the Jewish Telegraphic Agency on the basis of official government documents.
