Bulgaria Protests to Foreign Ministers Council Against Treaty Clause on Jewish Rights

Download PDF for this date

Insertion in the treaty adopted by the Paris Peace Conference of a clause guaranteeing protection to Jews is described as an unjustified affront in a memorandum to the Council of Foreign Ministers submitted by the Bulgarian Government.

The memorandum, which will be considered by the foreign ministers of the Big Four, who began meeting in New York today, was published yesterday in the Sofia press. It points out that Jews have the same rights as all other Bulgarian citizens, and therefore, a special clause guaranteeing their rights is unnecessary.
