Rumanian Jews Ask Emigration of Their Relatives from Rumania

A delegation of some 150 Jews from Rumania, most of them aging men and women, called on Dr. Nahum Goldman, president of the World Zionist Organization, today to urge greater efforts in behalf of the reunion of families split between this country and Rumania. The older people pointed out the personal hardships resulting from their separation from their children who have not been permitted to leave Rumania.

Dr. Goldmann told them of the unceasing efforts of worldwide Jewish organizations to get Rumania to open its doors for Israel-bound emigrants and pledged that these efforts would not come to a halt until they were successful. The Zionist leader revealed details of recent meetings with official Rumanian representatives and expressed the hope that the Rumanian authorities would show understanding and a sympathetic attitude toward the pleas of the Jewish groups.
