ZURICH (Apr. 19)
Only 75 Jews are left in Kishinev, capital of Bessarabia, which is menaced by the Russian Army, it is reported in the Bukarester Zeitung, a Nazi newspaper published in Rumania, which reached here today.
The paper says that there were 11,888 Jews in Kishinev in 1941 when the Rumanian mayor of that city ordered a census of the population. Before the war there were about 80,000 Jews in Kishinev. Many of them were massacred by the German-Rumanian troops, while others were deported to Transnistria. Several thousand Kishinev Jews retreated with the Red Army into Russia in the early months of the Russo-German war.
