Roumanian King Promises to Probe Outbreaks Against Jews

February 23, 1923
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

King Ferdinard will personally investigate the anti-Semitic agitation which has lately taken on most acute form in Boumanian universities and was responsible for the recent anti-Jewish outbreaks there. This promise was given by the King to a delegation of Jews who called upon him.

The students involved in the Jew-baiting persist in their agitation and at a meeting here hare demanded that the number of Jewish students at the universities be limited. They also demanded that those responsible for the recent outbreaks be immediately freed and that the ban on the university anti-Semitic publication be lifted.

Cards have been posted by the anti-Semitic students on which such signs as “Roumania belongs to the Roumanians” and “Jews, go to Palestine” are inscribed.
