Jewish Organizations in Rumania Form Commission to List War Criminals and Damages

Download PDF for this date

Jewish organizations here today formed a special commission for the purpose of preparing a list of war criminals directly and indirectly responsible for the murder of Jews during the period of collaboration between Rumania and Germany.

The commission will also prepare lists of Jews who were massacred by Germans and Rumanians. It will also register damages suffered by Jews whose property was located. All these lists will be compiled in preparation for submission to the United Nations.

Although there is no unity among the leaders of various Jewish groups here with regard to other political problems, all major Jewish parties are represented on the commission, including the Union of Rumanian Jews, the Jewish National Party and the Jewish Democratic Bloc.
