Anti-semitic Disturbances Reported from Soroca

Download PDF for this date

While anti-Semitic disturbances were reported today from Soroca in Bessarabia, and the surrounding villages, the Roumanian press is expressing astonishment over the government’s daily assurances that the excesses will not be repeated. In the meantime Deputy Landau has submitted a memorandum to the police prefect of Bessarabia demanding increased protection in view of the serious danger to Jewish life and property.

The Roumanian press also reports that Carol Danila, anti-Semitic agitator, made numerous anti-Semitic speeches at various railway stations while traveling under arrest. He distributed from his car numerous proclamations while the police officials supposed to be guarding him permitted him to give voice to his cry of “down with the Jews.” The papers in publishing the story ask whether such occurrences would be possible in any other country.
