Rumanian Government Dismisses Head of Office for Jewish Affairs

Heinrich Streitman, who was chosen by the pro-Nazi Rumanian Government to head the Jewish Central Office from which all Jewish activities in Rumania are supervised, has now been dismissed by the Rumanian authorities, it was reported here today from Bucharest.

Dr. N. Gingold, a Jewish physician of Bucharest, has been named to Streitman’s post, the report said. Dr. Gingold, who has also been cooperating with the Antonescu regime, was formerly general secretary of the Jewish Central Office, which was established by the Rumanian authorities after the dissolution of the Jewish communities and the liquidation of all central Jewish organizations.
