Dr. Markus Kraemer, Rumanian Zionist leader, who has just arrived here, reported today that approximately 1,500 Jews were killed during the recent Iron Guard excesses in Rumania. He addressed a meeting sponsored by the Rumanian Jewish Settlers’ Association.

(A Budapest dispatch to the Overseas News Agency by Leigh White, ONA staff correspondent who had been in Bucharest at the time, estimated the victims during the first week of the terror reign at 350 to 500, about half of them Jews.)
