To the Reader's Attention!


The events and data contained in this work refer strictly to the territories under Romanian authority, i.e., under Antonescu government at the respective time.

This work does not refer to the Jews of Northern Transylvania, which territory was under Horthyst occupation at the time. As such, the responsibility for the crimes committed against these Jews rests exclusively with the Hungarian authorities in Budapest during the respective time frame.

By the same token, this work does not refer to the few Jews (below 1,000 persons) living in the Quadrilater area, since this territory was relinquished to Bulgaria in September 1940.

The events are being presented in chronological order. The statistical figures cited in this work are based in their majority on official data of the Romanian State, resulting from population censuses and other similar records.
