Bulgarian Government Ousts Jews from Premises of Confiscated Enterprises

Jews in Sofia, capital of Bulgaria, who have been ousted from certain professions and trades by the Bulgarian Government, were today ordered to vacate any premises connected with such businesses. These houses and residences taken from the Jews will be given to the families of Bulgarian officials, the Sofia radio announced.

Last month the Bulgarian Government, acting under powers granted it by the Bulgarian parliament “to solve the Jewish problem,” issued a series of decrees virtually excluding Jews from the country’s economy.
