Thirty-six persons of Jewish origin have been banned as travel agents and salesmen in the Bulgarian railway system under a decree of the Ministry of Railways, according to a Bulgarian-language broadcast from the Nazi-controlled Zeesen radio. It added that 28 Jewish-owned transport firms would be “reconstructed” and that firms employing Jews as agents would be obliged to replace them by April 15.
