Download PDF for this date

Partial results of the Government’s revision of Jewish citizenships, published today by the Ministry of Justice, show that 80 per cent of those investigated have been denaturalized. (Figures published on June 6 said that 395,183 had been called in connection with the revision.)

Those deprived of citizenship also lose the right to do business in Rumania. The Czernowitz municipality has ordered those denaturalized to liquidate their businesses within a fortnight.
