Download PDF for this date

Commenting on the recent outbreak of anti-Jewish incidents, the independent newspaper, Semnalul, warns the Rumanian people that “anti-Semitism is undesirable because it could jeopardize Rumanian interests abroad.”

At the same time Peasant leader Juliu Maniu’s newspaper accuses Foreign Minister Gheorghe Tartarescu of not only supporting anti-Semitism morally, but of having organized pogroms while Premier under King Carol.

Representatives of Rumania’s 20,000 Sephardic Jews, in an interview with a Jewish Telegraphic Agency correspondent, appealed to the Sephardic Jews of the world to help them rebuild their Bucharest synagogue, which was destroyed in 1941 by Iron Guardists.
