Revisited – Romania’s Iași pogrom, one of the worst massacres of Jews during World War II


During World War II, one of the worst massacres of the conflict took place in Eastern Europe, in Romania’s second city of Iași . A tenth of the city’s population – more than 13,000 people – was murdered in the space of a few days, simply because they were Jews.
