Uniunea Evreilor Romani was Romania’s oldest and most important Jewish organization. In 1938 Romania’s King Carol II dissolved all of his country’s political organizations, including the Uniunea Evreilor Romani. Until that time, the UER worked at defending Jewish interests: instituted and maintained civil rights for Jews; fought official and unofficial anti-Semitism; and encouraged the incorporation of Jews into Romanian life. After the liberation, the UER concentrated on defending the human rights of Romanian Jews.

Dr. Wilhelm Filderman was the respected leader of the Unicenea Evreilor Romani.
