Iron Guard to Open Co-ops in Bucharest Anti-jewish Boycott Drive

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

AN ANTI-JEWISH BOYCOTT CAMPAIGN UNDER THE SLOGAN, “NOT A PIN FROM THE JEWS,” WAS ANNOUNCED TODAY IN THE WIDELY-CIRCULATED NEWSPAPERS, PORUNCA VREMI AND BUNAVESTIRE.

THE FIRST STEP IN THE DRIVE, IT WAS STATED, WILL BE ESTABLISHMENT BY THE ANTI-SEMITIC FASCIST IRON GUARD OF COOPERATIVE STORES IN EVERY SECTION OF THE CAPITAL WITH CHRISTIAN STAFFS. THE SHOPS WILL SERVE AS PROPAGANDA CENTERS.

“THE ONLY METHOD OF GETTING RID OF THE JEWS IS STARVING THEM TO DEATH,” DECLARED PORUNCA VREMI IN APPEALING FOR SUPPORT OF THE BOYCOTT.

MEANWHILE, FOLLOWING LAST WEEK’S ANTI-JEWISH DISORDERS IN THE TOWN OF PANCIU, PREMIER GEORG TATARESCU ORDERED LOCAL AUTHORITIES TO ENFORCE LAW AND ORDER. NO MEASURES HAVE BEEN TAKEN AGAINST THE RIOTERS.

M. SARATEANU, GENERAL SECRETARY OF THE UNION OF RUMANIAN JEWS, RETURNED FROM THE TOWN AND REPORTED THE VICTIMS OF THE DISTURBANCES WERE MOSTLY WAR VETERANS AND WAR WIDOWS. THE SITUATION OF THE JEWS OF THE TOWN, WITH MANY SHOPS AND HOUSES DEMOLISHED AND ARTISANS’ TOOLS RUINED, IS DESPERATE, HE SAID. THE JEWISH NEWSPAPER CURIERUL ISRAEL IT APPEALED FOR AID FOR THE VICTIMS OF THE DISORDERS.
