Two Anti-semitic Congresses in Roumania Open Their Sessions

Download PDF for this date

(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Roumania holds the distinction of housing two anti-Semitic congresses which opened their sessions on the same day, but in two different cities.

One congress was that of the Christian League under the leadership of Alexander Cuza, which opened yesterday in Jassy. The Jassy congress, at the urge of Cuza, adopted a resolution excluding from the League all the deputies elected to parliament on the League’s ticket. Thus, Cuza remains the sole representative of the League in the Roumanian parliament.

Simultaneously, a congress of Cuza’s opponents in the Christian League opened in Bucharest. This congress decided to exclude Alexander Cuza from the party.
