Promulgation of Anti-jewish Law in Bulgaria Nears

Download PDF for this date

Bulgaria’s anti-Semitic law will be promulgated by King Boris on Saturday, it was reported here today.

Although the Jewish community in Sofia is hoping against hope that enforcement of the regulations will be less severe than the wording of the legislation implies, two clauses are understood to be particularly worrying the Jews–the one providing for registration of Jewish property, real and personal, and the clause providing for withdrawal of citizenship from Jews remaining abroad over three months.

A delegation of Jewish leaders arrived in Belgrade from Sofia yesterday to confer with the Yugoslav Jewish community on the possibility that financial assistance may be necessary to relieve suffering caused by strict application of the harsher provisions of the Bulgarian law.
