Roumanian Government Settles Question of Jewish Refugees


The question of the Russian Jewish refugees, who were stranded in Roumania, anticipating the possibility of proceeding to America, was settled today as the result of the negotations between the Roumanian Government and Mr. Lucien Wolf, the Secretary of the Joint Foreign Committee of England and representative of the Ica, the Jewish Colonization Association.

According to the agreement reached, the Roumanian Government will commence diplomatic negotiations with the Soviet Government to obtain the latter’s permission for a mass return of those refugees who are unable to proceed to America. Those refugees, however, who have possibilities of proceeding to their destinations will be permitted to stay in Roumania until able to go.
