The Maniu government succeeded in establishing general order in the country and a favorable atmosphere with regard to Jews, although the positive demands of the Jewish population have not been met, declared Deputy Meyer Ebner, in a review of the Jewish situation published on the occasion of the tenth anniversary celebration of the unification of Greater Roumania.

There are occasional anti-Jewish attacks, but the guilty are always punished. Anti-Semitism is prevalent principally among the intellectual classes, he states. The positive demands of the Jewish representatives have not been fulfilled, although there is a basis for the hope that the Jewish requirements will be met, Deputy Ebner declares.
