Bulgaria Suspends Anti-jewish Measures in Accepting Allied Peace Terms

Download PDF for this date

All anti-Jewish measures were suspended today by the Bulgarian Government in Varna, Burgas and other cities along the Black Sea as a result of negotiations between the Allies and Bulgaria for the lattar’s surrender, it was reliably learned here.

The restoration of full rights to Jews was one of the conditions in the preliminary terms for surrender which British-American military authorities presented to the Bulgarian Government through neutral channels. The terms were backed by the Soviet Government through its diplomats in Sofia and were reported today to have been accepted by Bulgaria.

The acceptance by Bulgaria of the Allied terms will also effect the Jews in Hungary and Rumania, it was predicted here. Rumania, facing encirclement, is reported to be modifying its anti-Jewish policy to pave the way for surrender, while the pro-Nazi Hungarian Government, thoroughly frightened, is attempting to dodge the blame for the ruthless deportations of Jews and is ready to place moderate elements in its cabinet.
