A wall notice calling on all Jews who want to immigrate outside the borders of Romania to come and register with the Jewish Immigration Board. Romania, the 1930s, before the outbreak of World War II. Romanian, Yiddish.

The ad reads:
"Advertisement. I am informing everyone who wants to immigrate to America, Argentina, Palestine, Brazil and Canada will come to the Jewish Committee on September 19 and 20, where they will be informed by the representative of the Immigration Committee D-I Vaisman. President of the Central Committee Yosef Panis."

On the eve of World War II, there were approximately 850,000 Jews in Romania, of whom only approximately 425,000 remained after the Holocaust. During the war, Romania cooperated with Nazi Germany and, like it, aimed to expel the Jews from Romania, while looting their property. Jewish immigration to the Romanian principalities and after their unification to Romania was frowned upon by most Romanians and greatly increased anti-Semitism and had a negative impact on the civil-legal status of Romanian Jews. Romanian anti-Jewish legislation put a heavy burden on the Jews, their occupations and their educational opportunities. As a result, many Jews in Romania decided to leave and immigrate to the West, and as a result the absolute number of Romanian Jews decreased as well as their relative share in the population. With the end of the war and until the closing of the gates of Romania, about 200,000 Jews left it to Eretz Israel.
