The Turkish radio today reported that all anti-Jewish regulations in Bulgaria, introduced under German pressure, have been abolished.

Jews in Bulgaria have been notified that they need no longer wear the yellow Mogen Dovid and that they are as free to leave their restricted residential areas and move about the country as other citizens, the broadcast said.
