New measures which further restrict the activities of Rumanian Jews were announced today on the Bucharest radio.

Included among the new decrees is one which prohibits Jews from travelling on crack passenger trains. All travellers on such trains in the future will be forced to produce documents proving that they are not Jewish, the Rumanian broadcaster stated.

Jewish houses which have already been confiscated under the decree announced recently, which places all property belonging to individual Jews or to Jewish communities “at the disposal of the government,” will be used to house “political leaders” from occupied Russian territory and from the “liberated provinces” of Bessarabia and Bukovina, the Bucharest radio disclosed.
