Download PDF for this date

The Rumanian authorities, foreseeing the defeat of the Nazis, are now acting to prevent the Jews in Rumania from being restored to the economic positions from which they have been ousted since the outbreak of the war.

The Deutsche Nachrichten Bureau, official Nazi news agency, today reports from Bucharest that special schools have been established by the Rumanian Ministry of Labor to train Rumanians to replace Jewish employees in enterprises which up until now have been staffed mainly by Jews. At the same time it is reported from Bucharest that the authorities there “hope to complete the elimination of Jews from trade before the war ends.”

Rumanian newspapers reaching here today report that Premier Ion Antonescu has received from Labor Minister Danulescu a report on the progress being made in ousting Jews from commerce and industry.
