Patriarch Miron Christea, opening the meeting, praised Prof. Cuza’s racial activities. Metropolitan Archbishop Baron Vartolomeus and other speakers, including members of the Rumanian Academy of Sciences and Arts, newspaper editors, leading lawyers and physicians, praised Prof. Cuza’s anti-Semitic movement and declared adherence to it.
