All Jews in Rumania Ordered to Forced Labor

Download PDF for this date

All Jewish males in Rumania aged between 18 and 50, are to report for compulsory labor between the lst and 11th of September, an announcement broadcast last night over the Bucharest radio stated. They must carry with them food sufficient for three days, the announcement said.

This is the second time since the entrance of Nazi armed forces into Rumania that all Jews have been ordered to report for compulsory labor. The first order was revoked, however, soon after it was issued.
