Polish Consulates in Rumania Take Passports from Jews

Download PDF for this date

Differences have arisen between Polish and Jewish war refugees from Poland, according to reports from Cernauti, Jassy, Botosuni and other Rumanian cities.

Polish refugees are refusing to deal with Jews and are boycotting Jewish stores and restaurants. At the same time, many Jews who called at Polish consulates in Rumania to have their Polish passports prolonged, have been deprived of their passports altogether and rendered stateless, unable to enter other countries from Rumania.
