Rumania Urged to Take Action on Anti-semites

Download PDF for this date

A series of resolutions expressing complaint to the government against the present treatment of the Jews in Rumania were adopted today at a mass meeting of the Rumanian Jewish Party here, which was addressed by numerous Jewish leaders.

The resolutions charge that:

1. The government permits the anti-Semitic press in Rumania the fullest freedom in inciting anti-Jewish hatred, despite the prevailing martial law in the country, which prohibits anti-racial propaganda.

2. The government is not enforcing the martial law properly when matters of Jewish interest are involved.

3. The government is helping Rumanians to advance in their business and does not grant similar opportunities to Jewish business men, thus violating the rights and vital interests of Jews in commerce.

4. The government does not provide sufficient protection for Jewish students in the Rumanian universities.

Protesting against the government’s failure to act, and warning that present conditions are a menace not only to the Jews but the entire political and economic welfare of the country, the Rumanian Jewish Party in its resolutions urges public opinion “to influence the government to take rigorous measures against the growing anti-Jewish feeling in the country.”
