A list of 117 Rumanian Jews killed in Bucharest during the Iron Guard pogroms of last Jan. 22nd and 23rd, was made public today by the United Rumanian Jews of America.

Charles Sonnenreich, president of the organization, stated that the list came from “reliable sources,” and was being released for the benefit of Americans who have relatives there and wish to learn their fate. He announced that he hoped soon to obtain lists of Jewish victims in other cities, including Jassy, Kishinev, Akkerman and Bender.
