Download PDF for this date

Commenting in a Bucharest dispatch to the New York Times on the Reich-Rumanian trade accord, Anne O’Hare McCormick reported yesterday that Rumanian officials showed no enthusiasm over the agreement and that Jewish merchants “are filled with alarm.” The pact resulted from “sheer economic necessity” and was “a bargain that nobody relishes,” the writer said. She added: “Jewish business men are filled with alarm as they foresee business organized under German direction. Jews generally who have enjoyed some respite here in the past year are nervous at the prospect of increased German influence in every sphere.”
