Landau Said Nothing About Crajova Excesses in Letter

Download PDF for this date

As the result of a mutilated cable received December 30 with regard to Deputy Michael Landau’s open letter to the Roumanian Foreign Minister Mironescu in the “Unzer Zeit,” and published in the Jewish Daily Bulletin of December 31, Deputy Landau was erroneously made to say that he requested a denial of the recent communique issued from the Roumanian Legation in Washington which declared reports of excesses at Crajova during the Students’ Congress there as exaggerated.

Deputy Landau merely asked that the government deny that part of the communique in which he was reported to have demanded that the government should not have permitted the Students’ Congress to be held. He declares that he only protested against the government sending greetings to the Congress which adopted resolutions demanding numerus clausus, “something which affects a million Jewish citizens who loyally fulfill their duties to the state.”
