The question of pensions for the widows and orphans of Jews killed by the Nazis in Rumania and the victims of pogroms and deportations was raised in Parliament yesterday for the second time.

During a discussion of pensions, Dr. Edward Manulescu, a deputy representing the Union of Rumanian Jews, stressed the poverty and need of Jewish survivors. He was supported by the Liberal and Social Democratic parties, one of whose deputies, Virgil Ionescu, declared that it “is a deep shame to me as a Socialist and a non-Jew to see that the culprits of the Jassi massacre are still untried.”
