To the Reader's
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
