Bucharest to host monument dedicated to Jewish heroes who fought for Romania in WWI

The Romanian Senate adopted on Monday, December 18, a legislative proposal on building a commemorative monument dedicated to Jewish heroes who gave their lives for Romania in World War I, reports local Mediafax.

According to the explanatory memorandum, the construction of this monument will contribute to “enhancing the heroic deeds performed for the protection of Romania, developing the national identity and respect for the Romanian Army, combating xenophobia and anti-Semitism, as well as stereotypes and misperception, and the promotion of the Jewish heroes’ sacrifice in the war to reunite Romania.”
