“blood Bath in Rumania” Reports on Persecution of Jews by Antonescu

Download PDF for this date

A documented account of the horror that has been visited upon the Jews of Rumania since the ascension to power two years ago of Marshal Ion Antonescu, is published today by the United Rumanian Jews of America under the title “Blood Bath in Rumania.”

Most of the documentary material appearing in the volume has been taken from an official report published by the Antonescu Government, entitled “At the Brink of the Abyss.” This volume, which was withdrawn from circulation two days after publication at the request of the Nazis, was smuggled out of Rumania by an exiled official.
