News Brief

The call to partial mobilization has been enthusiastically answered even by Jews who have just been denaturalized by the Government and others who are slated for loss of citizenship.

At the same time, the nationalist press has intensified its agitation against possible entry of Jewish refugees. Curentul warns the Government not to increase Rumanian “ghettos” and demands concentration camp for “war-mongering Jews.” The paper declares: “We are ready for war but not for the sake of Jews, whose sole right is to keep quiet or be gagged.”

Dr. William Filderman, Rumanian Jewish leader, has again intervened with the Ministry of Labor on the situation of denaturalized Jews, who are deprived of the right to work. Because of the international situation, a speedy solution of problem is not considered likely.
