Report Wholesale Dismissal of Jews in Rumania

The Rumanian press today reports the wholesale dismissal of Jews by private enterprises as a result of the law requiring that preference in employment be given to Rumanians over aliens.

According to one report the publishing firm “Socec” has dismissed 150 Jewish employes, giving as the reason an order by the Ministry of Trade which demanded their discharge.

The newspaper “Zorile” protests strongly against the firm’s action and especially against the ministry’s demand, pointing out that the law mentions merely “alien Rumanians.”

Since the discharged Jews are Rumanian citizens of the Jewish faith, the paper demands that the Ministry of Trade order their re-employment.
