Rumanian Opposition Parties Charged by Jewish Leader with Fostering Anti-semitism

The Liberal and National Peasant parties, which comprise the opposition to the present Rumanian Government, were charged today by M.A. Saraceanu, president of the Jewish Democratic Committee, with fostering anti-Semitism.

Addressing a conference of foreign correspondents, Saraceanu cited a petition signed by 80,000 persons charging the two parties with anti-Semitism and, replying to a recent denial by Juliu Maniu, head of the National Peasants, he produced several documents illustrating some of the party’s anti-Jewish activities.
