The statistics are used by Matatias Carp in the three volumes: Cartea
Neagră, Suferintele Evreilor din Romaňia, 1940-1944, and "Breviarul Statistic al
populatiei Evreiesti din Romania" concluded on May 20, 1942.
From 149,019 Jews from North Transylvania, deported to Poland by the
Hungarians, 29,405 returned.
North Bukovina and Bessarabia remained under Soviet occupation.
The Jews who returned from Transnistria in the Old Kingdom, the majority from North Bukovina and Bessarabia, were obliged--during the years 1946-1947--to return to the regions from where they had been deported, being
considered Soviet citizens. The Christian population from those regions, which
took refuge in the Old Kingdom after the evacuation of 1940 and 1944, has not
been obliged to return to the regions where they belonged.
That period of time witnessed the start of the war; the massacre at Stinca
Roznovanu; the evacuation of the Jews from the villages and townlets; the concentration in the ghettos; and the deportation to Transnistria.
