New Anti-jewish Attacks in Rumania; Police Hold Aloof

With police failing to interfere, anti-Jewish attacks were resumed today in various parts of Rumania.

A crowd of about 100 persons attacked Jewish passersby in Radauti, in the province of Bukovina, and proceeded to demolish a Jewish-owned hotel in the town. No arrests were made.

A Jewish merchant, Leon Druckmann, was assaulted by hoodlums on a train near Darmanesti. They had tried unsuccessfully to force him to leap from the train while it was in motion.

Attacks on Jews were reported in Putna.

Failure of police to intervene is causing nervousness among Jews throughout the country. Commenting on the situation, the Czernowitz Morgenblatt declares the inaction of the authorities is encouraging anti-Semites to new excesses.
