A Call to Spy #FilmReview #BriFri — 3 Comments

  1. I was interested to hear of the Romanian spy, as a friend had a Romanian father who worked for an oil company there. The company was taken over by the British in the 1930s, and the Romanians were worried about their nationals losing jobs, so a condition of the deal was that only Romanian citizens be employed. My friend’s father lost his job, as he was Jewish, and Jews were not allowed to become Romanian citizens. The father then emigrated to Britain, where he was able to become a citizen.
    I thought you might like this historical footnote.
