4. Transit Camps and Ghettos, Deportations, and Other Mass Murders | Romanian Jewish Heritage

romanianjewish.org [cached]

On November 12, at Marshal Antonescu ' s request, the Supreme General Staff offered statistics showing that 47,345 Jews were then employed in socially useful or, more precisely, forced labor, the luckier at projects in their own communities, others in external work detachments hundreds of kilometers away.
The deportation of Jews from Bessarabia and Bukovina entailed a systematic, wide-ranging process that Marshal Antonescu and his immediate collaborators put in place and that was implemented largely by the Supreme General Staff. Deportations of Jews from Moldavia, Walachia, Transylvania, and Banat occurred after Marshal Antonescu ordered [on July 17, 1942] that all Jews who had violated laws and provisions, and others similar infractions would be deported beyond the Bug [River]. The historical record proves that baser motives were at play: the desire to find scapegoats for Romanian failures; the eagerness for revenge on anyone for Romanian sufferings; the boundless, violent greed of both state and mob; unrestrained sadism; and blind, unquestioning, boundless bigotry . Between the lines even Antonescu hinted that lust for revenge was central, when, for example, he spoke of Jewish agents who exploited the poor until they bled, who engaged in speculation, and who had halted the development of the Romanian nation for centuries; for him, the deportations meant satisfying the ostensible need to get rid of this scourge. The report of the committee set up by Marshal Antonescu to examine irregularities in the Chis?ina¬u ghetto contains details of the instructions to the convoy gendarmes and their manner of fulfilling them.


Anti-Semitism in Romania, 2002 Report | Romanian Jewish Heritage

romanianjewish.org [cached]

The military ruler of Romania during the first years of WWII, Marshal Ion Antonescu, a loyal supporter of Hitler and a fierce opponent of the expansion of Soviet Communism.
Antonescu viewed the Romanian Jewish population as "Judeo-Bolshevik" and with this image in the mind of average Romanians, had a free hand to put in motion his plans to kill as many Jews as possible, through forced labor camps . Antonescu, was eventually removed from power and executed, and under the Communist regime he was declared a war criminal. For some anticommunist activists (the "dissidents") his persona was transformed into that of a martyr and national patriot. Most of these supporters deliberately ignore the crimes committed under the direct command of Antonescu against the Romanian Jewish population. Several claim that Antonescu actually saved the Romanian Jewish population from total extermination. Until the summer of 2002, numerous streets and public squares were named after Marshal Ion Antonescu. His statues were displayed in public places. Government officials were faced with repeated questions on the measures being taken to prevent the nationalist veneration of Marshal Ion Antonescu. Professor Buzatu is also one of the leaders behind the "Ion Antonescu" foundation which is active in promoting the image of Marshal Ion Antonescu as a national hero . a. The elimination from public life of the cult of Marshal Antonescu, the leader of the totalitarian state in the period 1940-1944, who was subsequently sentenced to death and executed in 1946 as a war criminal. Marshal Antonescu was responsible for the death of at least 250,000 Jews throughout the territory of Romania, Basarabia, Bucovina and Transnistria. 1. The "Curentul" daily newspaper of August 7 reports: "The Mayor of Flamanzi wants Antonescu in front of the Village Council". The mayor, a member of the National Liberal Party, states that "even in 10 years from now I will have the same ideas. I will say the same things. Antonescu should be built a golden bust and we should kiss it every day..." 5. In the hall of the teacher's entrance to the Iulia Hasdeu High School, Bucharest there is a memorial plaque that commemorates the participation of the King (Mihai I), the ruler of the state (Marshal Ion Antonescu), and the Minister of National Culture (Ion Petrovici) at the inauguration of the new school building in 1942. This was the pretext for which Antonescu ordered the crossing of the Prut, and for which Romania entered into an alliance with the Nazi Germany. The matter became absurd after it developed into an inversion of relations between the marshal and the Jews "The Jews should erect statues (to Antonescu - our note) themselves... Marshal Antonescu saved the Jews and we shall continue to defend his traces that still exist in the country at present..." Although he denies that there is anti-Semitism in Romania today, C.V. Tudor finds its cause. To summarize his views: the Jews, Romanian or Israeli citizens, aim to get rich to the detriment of the Romanians. This position found supporters in the debates of a private television channel, OTV, where there were reiterated the arguments according to which Marshal Antonescu actually "saved" the Jews from Romania, Transnistria being a kind of vacation colony, and that the Jews thus rescued, instead of being grateful, brought the communism in Romania and contributed to the physical elimination of the political and cultural elite of Romania.

For some anticommunist activists (the "dissidents") his persona was transformed into that of a martyr and national patriot. Most of these supporters deliberately ignore the crimes committed under the direct command of Antonescu against the Romanian Jewish population. Indeed, Antonescu's supporters openly dispute the official numbers of Jews that were exterminated. Several claim that Antonescu actually saved the Romanian Jewish population from total extermination. Using pseudo-scientific explanations they point to the fact that Romania is the Eastern European country with the highest percentage of WWII Jewish survivors. In their opinion this "fact" makes the numbers attributed to the dead Jewish population in Romania "acceptable" when compared against the numbers of Jews exterminated in Hungary and other countries. Until the summer of 2002, numerous streets and public squares were named after Marshal Ion Antonescu. His statues were displayed in public places. Government officials were faced with repeated questions on the measures being taken to prevent the nationalist veneration of Marshal Ion Antonescu.

On the night of October 11-12, notorious and well-known German slogans were written on the walls of the Jewish Theatre, recalling the extermination camp at Auschwitz. 5.

1. The Legal Status of the Jews in Romania | Romanian Jewish Heritage

On September 8, Filderman obtained a meeting with Antonescu himself, who, in a good mood, received him and Dr. Nicolae Lupu (a National Peasant party leader who facilitated the meeting, was a politician on good terms with Antonescu, and was sympathetic to the plight of the Jews); the leader agreed to order Mihai Antonescu “to cancel the wearing of the badge throughout the country.†Indeed, on September 10, the prefect of police in the capital, N. Radu, sent a written message to the president of the Sephardic Jewish Community stating that following a decision of Marshal Antonescu, Jews would not be required to wear any distinguishing badge.
Until then Lecca oversaw the new administrative and economic agency established by the law that Marshal Antonescu had signed into effect on December 16, 1941 . The Centrala was responsible for, among other things, the following:
