An appeal to take immediate measures to stop the increasing anti-Semitic propaganda and the attacks on Jewish passengers in Roumanian trains was directed to the Minister of the Interior by Dr. Meyer Ebner, representative of the Jewish population of Bukowina in the Roumanian parliament.

The anti-Semitic propaganda has greatly increased in Czernowitz and resulted in an attack on a synagogue in Redautz. The Jewish deputy urged the Minister to issue instructions that all those guilty in the last outrages be punished so that the opinion that the Jews are not protected by the law will not take root in the minds of the people.
