Download PDF for this date

The Bucharest radio today announced that all Jews in Rumania between the ages of 16 and 17, as well as those between 51 and 55, have been ordered to enlist in units doing rescue work during Allied air raids on Rumanian cities. Jews between 17 and 50 were placed at forced labor by the Rumanian authorities many months ago.
