Viorel Trifa

From dKosopedia

Viorel Trifa was a Romanian Iron Guard leader who helped begin the 1941 fascist revolt in Bucharest that led to a pogrom action against the city's Jewish minority. Hundreds of Jews were murdered in the mob violence and Jewish homes and shops burned.

Before 1941 Trifa edited the anti-Semitic newspaper Libertate and served as the president of the National Union of Christian Students.

In July 1950, Trifa arrives in New York as a displaced person and then moves to Cleveland, Ohio. On May 11, 1955, at the height of the anti-communist frenzy in the United States, Trifa was allowed to deliver the convocation prayer in the U.S. Senate.
