Cession of Territories to Soviet
Perils Nationality of Residents

Delray Synagogue
to Hold Services

BUCHAREST, (JTA) — Some 30,000 Romanian
Jews repatriated from areas ceded to the Soviet Union
will be forced to live on Displaced Persons status unless
Romania revises its present citizenship laws to include
them, it was learned here.
During the last 18 months, over 40,000 Jews, for-
merly residents of Bessarabia and

Bukovina, were repatriated after
renouncing Russian citizenship.
Although the Jews expected to re-
gain their Romanian citizenship,
the government maintains they
lost their citizenship when the
territories were ceded to the
USSR and classifies them as for-
eigners, prohibiting them from
engaging in gainful occupations.
Of the total number, 10,000 orig-
inated in Southern Bukovina
which was not ceded to Russia,
and their citizenship rights have
been restored.

Reds Exile Vienna Jew

VIENNA, (JTA) — Oscar Wil-
helm, 60-year-old Austrian Jew
who was in charge of the resto-
ration of landed properties in Aus-
tria to Jewish owners, has been
sentenced by a Russian military
court to two years in a Siberian
labor camp.
Wilhelm had been appointed by
the Austrian government to direct
the colonization society which
took over from the Nazi coloniza-
tion office the properties seized
from Jews.
Recently the Russian command
in Vienna ordered the liquidation
of the colonization society. Wil-
heini ignored the order, claiming
the headquarters of the society
was situated in the international
zone where Russian orders are ef-
fective only with the permission
of the Allied Control Council.
Wilhelm charged that the Rus-
sians had seized a large number
of Jewigh holdings on the grounds
that they were German property.
It is understood he also informed
the foreign press of the move,
thereby angering the Soviet com-

Polish Jews
Pay to Recover
Their Children




WARSAW (JTA)—A delegation
of the Jewish coordination com-
mittee this week visited the Polish
vice-minister for education, M.
Bienkowski, and asked him for
government aid in recovering Jew-
ish children who were placed in
non-Jewish homes during the Nazi
occupation when their parents
were exterminated by the Ger-
The committee is dispatching
representatives all over the coun-
try to organize the work of re-
turning Jewish children to Jewish
community institutions.
In most cases these children
must be "bought" back from the
non-Jews who gave them shelter.
The average price for a child to-
day is 40,000 zlotys. It is estimated
that Jewish organizations in Pol-
and have spent several million
zlays in redeeming Jewish or-
Many of the children, having
lived for several years in a non-
Jewish atmosphere, do not believe
that they are Jews and refuse
Jewish care.
Some of them have been raised
in anti-Jewish atmosphere and
hate Jews. Especially difficult is
the recovery of those Jewish chil-
dren who have been given asylum
in monasteries and in Polish
homes for orphans. These insti-
tutions refuse, in most cases, to
surrender the children to the Jew-
ish community.

Philip Bernstein, Jewish advisor
to the American occupation forces
in Germany, on his return here

secured an audience with Pope
Pius XII, announced that he will
leave soon for Washington to dis-
cuss with the War Department
the plan for the admission of 25,-
000 Jewish refugees to Italy, in
which the United States Govern-
ment is interested.
Rabbi Bernstein said the Pope
displayed great sympathy for the
Jews when they discussed anti-
Semitic manifestations in Poland
and the problems of displaced
