Bulgarian National Bank Calls Upon Jews to Withdraw Their “blocked” Valuables

The Bulgarian National Bank today called upon Jews “to speed up the withdrawal from the bank of valuables which they deposited to the credit of the Commissioner for Jewish Affairs” under the orders of the previous pro-Nazi regime.

The appeal was made in a broadcast over the Sofia radio. The broadcast also announced that of 659 persons who will be tried this month as war criminals, nine are charged with anti-Jewish activities.
