The Paris radio today reported from Bucharest that more than 200,000 Rumanian Jews were deported in the course of 1941 to Transnistria, the Axis-occupied section of the Ukraine bordering on Rumania.

“An additional 300,000 Jews will be transported from Rumania to the camps in Transnistria in the near future,” the Bucharest report stated. The same broadcast reported that the Hungarian authorities have declared illegal the activities of the Zionist federation in the part of Transylvania regained by Hungary from Rumania.
