Şafran, Chief-Rabbi of Romania between 1940-47, recalls his struggle, as a member of the Senate, against antisemitic legislation and discriminatory measures. Describes the pogroms in Bucharest (January 1941) and Iaşi (June 1941), the massacre of thousands of Jews from Bessarabia and Bukovina in 1941, and the deportation of Jews to Transnistria. Gives details on his meetings with Romanian leaders (Ion and Mihai Antonescu) and heads of the Romanian Orthodox Church, and his efforts, together with W. Filderman, to prevent further deportations. Emphasizes the efforts of the Papal Nuncio Andrea Cassulo, the Red Cross delegate, King Mihai I and the Queen Mother Elena, in the same cause. Notes the negative role of the Jewish Center, a "Judenrat" appointed by Romanian authorities.

Toldot ha-Shoʼah : Romanyah by Jean Ancel( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in Hebrew and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A history of the Holocaust in Romania, based on documents and interviews with survivors. Vol. 1 includes information on traditional Romanian antisemitism; the anti-Jewish attitude of the Romanian Orthodox Church; anti-Jewish measures during the Goga-Cuza regime, the reign of Carol II, and especially the Antonescu regime; Romanianization of Jewish property; pogroms in 1940; and massacres of Jews in Bessarabia and Bukovina in 1941. Vol. 2 describes deportations to and conditions in Transnistria, the Iaşi pogrom in 1941, and the halting of deportations in late 1942. States that the latter was due to the Antonescus' concern about Romania's image in the West, a conflict between Mihai Antonescu and the Romanian army, the objection of Romanians in Transylvania to a planned replacement of Jews by Germans, and the efforts of Jewish leaders, particularly Wilhelm Filderman
Haḳdamah le-retsaḥ : peraʻot Yasi, 29 be-Yuni 1941 by Jean Ancel( Book )

2 editions published in 2003 in Hebrew and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on documentation, discusses the pogrom in Iaşi on 29-30 June 1941. On 27 June Ion Antonescu ordered the deportation of the 45,000 Iaşi Jews to camps in the south; the order did not come from the Germans, although Antonescu knew he would have German backing. This was the beginning of Antonescu's plan to rid Romania of its Jews. To facilitate this step he declared the Jews of Iaşi to be Soviet collaborators. His instructions to kill Jews who "attacked the army" gave the soldiers and police a free hand. Describes arrests, murders, and robberies; a massacre of ca. 5,000 Jews at police headquarters, in which German soldiers also took part; the fate of Jews deported on the death trains, in which thousands died; murders in nearby towns; conditions in Iaşi after the pogrom; and an attempted cover-up by the Romanian government, which blamed the Germans for the pogrom. Between 12-14,000 Jews died in Iaşi or on the deportation trains
