Download PDF for this date

The appointment of Nichifor Robu, anti-Semitic member of parliament, as the government investigator of peasant conditions in Bukowina, and the naming of the anti-Semitic Deputy Valeriu Popp as minister for Transylvania, today created considerable anxiety in Jewish circles throughout Roumania.

The Jewish press voices anxiety lest Robu utilize his position for spreading anti-Jewish agitation while the same fear is manitested with regard to Popp since conditions in both Bukowina and Transylvania, centers of large Jewish populations, are especially unsettled.
