Aliens Told to Leave Rumania

Download PDF for this date

Aliens, including Jews, were officially advised today to leave Rumania during the first week of October. Foreign diplomatic representatives in Bucharest were taking steps to intervene in behalf of their respective nationals.

An official decree which went into effect yesterday provides for the verification of the status of all foreign citizens residing in Rumania, including those Rumanian Jews who have lost their citizenship as a result of the naturalization revision.

A virulent attack on the Jews is published in the well-known newspaper, Neamul Romanescu, which is controlled by Prof. Nicolae Jorga. The attack, written by Prof. Paul Papadopol, is based on a volume recently published here describing the Jewish contributions to civilization. Sharply denying the value of the Jewish contribution, the writer asserted that “the Jews set fire to the world.” He declared that despite the book’s claims, he still continued in his adherence to the anti-Semitic principles of Prof. Cuza.
