Rumanian Jews Get New Hope on Citizenship Revision

The Transylvanian Administrative High Court at Cluj has invalidated the action of the Cluj Municipal Council in barring Jews from the benefits of a recent decree reopening citizenship registers to persons possessing proof of nationalization who had not been recognized as citizens in the recent citizenship revision. The decision is expected to have a far-reaching effect on the large number of Jews who while possessing the necessary qualifications have not been recognized as citizens.
