Jewish Candidates for Rumanian Parliament Launch Campaign for Unity; Praise Government

Three Jewish candidates who are running on the Democratic Bloc in the forthcoming parliamentary elections today opened a joint campaign stressing the need for unity among all Jewish organizations.

The three, who are unopposed as representatives of the major Jewish parties, asked support of the Groza regime, pointing out that it has been responsible for the return of citizenship rights to many Jews whose legal status was in question, that it was settled the problem of repatriates and has awarded pension rights to the widows and orphans of Jews killed during the pro-Nazi regime.
