Rumanian Government Planning to Deprive Ousted Jewish Employees of Back Pay

The Rumanian Ministry of Justice is preparing the draft of a law which would deprive Jewish state employees ousted by the pro-Nazi regime of the four years back pay provided in an earlier version, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency learned today from a well informed source. The JTA informant said that the new law also postpones the date when Jews may reclaim their confiscated apartments until next April, instead of allowing them to move in immediately.

An organization to assist Rumanian Jews who were deported outside the borders of the country by the Germans has been formed here. It appealed to the Government today to allow it to send representatives to western Europe to investigate the situation of Rumanian Jewish deportees found in liberated territory.

Chief Rabbi Safran today sent a congratulatory message to Andre Vishinsky, Soviet Vice-Commissar of Foreign Affairs, who is presently in Rumania, on the occasion of the eighth anniversary of the promulgation of the “Stalin Constitution.”
