Dr. Efraim Zuroff:

"It appears that President Basescu is in bad need of an accurate history lesson about the Holocaust in Romania.The person who bears the major criminal responsibility for the mass murder of so many Jews is Marshal Antonescu who ruled the country as a dictator until he was removed from office. King Mihai had little influence, if any, on the fate of Romanian Jewry".
