Carol Holds out Hope for Disfranchised Roumanian Jews to Regain Their Rights

Thousands of Jews in Roumania will regain the citizenship rights they lost as a result of the post-War map changes if King Carol’s recommendation, in his message to parliament today, advocating a revision of the existing citizenship law is carried out.

The royal message opening the new session of parliament also assured that the various minorities in the country, of which the Jews are one of the most important, shall in the future, as in the past, enjoy the complete good-will and rights of which Roumania has already given proof in solving its great minorities problems.

Assurances of equal treatment for all religious and national minorities in accordance with Roumanian constitutional institutions were also voiced in the royal message. The King mentioned in passing the demand of the Jewish Parliamentary Club for the enactment of a Jewish communities ordinance.
