    After 1941, following a Russian ultimatum and German-Hungarian diktat, Romania lost Transylvannia, Bessarabia and Bukovina. There was no deportation of Jews from the remaining sovereign Romania. Jews were deported from Transylvannia (by Hungarians and Gemans) and from Bessarabia, when it was reconquered by the Romanians. Many Bessarabian Jews chosed to remain and become Soviet Union citizens rather than coming as refugees to Romania when Bessarabia was taken by the Russians frequently mocking the retreating Romanian army, thus generating a great deal of antipathy. There is no excuse for the Iasi pogrom and slaughter or for deportations in the reconquered Bessarabia, but there was no organised deportation of Jewish Romanian citizens. The Chief-Rabbi (Filderman) worked together with the Queen Mother to ensure that this would not happen.
