See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Importation and translation of anti-Semitic literature from Nazi Germany, including Reichsfuehrer Adolf Hitler’s biography, “Mein Kampf,” was prohibited today by the Rumanian government.

Rumanian authorities, realizing the spread of Hitlerism among the large number of Germans living in Rumania, recently dissolved the Rumanian Nazi organizations and declared them illegal.

In certain sections of Rumania, Germans had instituted a complete boycott of Jews and were threatening Jewish residents with death if they did not leave.

The Iron Guard, Rumanian anti-Semitic organization, has been accused of receiving funds from the German Nazis. Zeleya Codreanu, leader of the Iron Guard, declared that his organization was modelled entirely on Nazi principles.

Professor Alexander Cuza, notorious Rumanian anti-Semite and leader of the anti-Jewish bloc in the Rumanian parliament, is at present visiting Berlin as a guest of Adolf Hitler.
