Bucharest Radio Announces Jews Will Be Recruited into Army

Download PDF for this date

The Bucharest radio today announced that all Jews in the military classes of 1941 to 1946 will be recruited.

This is the first since Rumania allied itself with the Axis that Jews have been summoned for military duty. Previously Jews were barred from the armed forces and used only in forced labor battalions.
