A meeting in Moscow was addressed by representatives of the Bessarabian Jews who stated that life for the Jews is unbearable since Bessarabia has been annexed by Roumania. They related stories of anti-Semitic persecution, which have previously been reported by the J.T.A. The meeting passes a resolution demanding the release of Bessarabia from the Roumanian yoke, and reunion with the Russian Socialist Federated Soviet Republic.
