NICHIFOR ROBU – STEPS TOWARDS THE BIOGRAPHY
OF AN ANTISEMITE POLITICIAN

Radu Florian BRUJA

Abstract:
Nichifor Robu was one of the most controversial Romanian politicians from the inter-war period. He was an anti-Semite politician, important member, regional leader and parliamentarian of the National Christian Defense League. N. Robu, born in Bucovina in 1902 joined the nationalist societies of Bucovina, actively getting involved in all the nationalist manifestations after the Union. In 1923 he became founder member of the National Christian Defense League led by professor Alexandru C. Cuza, a nationalist and anti-Semite political orientation party. He distinguished himself as a very important militant of this party, organizer and opinion leader, being elected deputy in more legislatures. Not only Radauti, but also the other counties of Bucovina, represented the political feudality of Nichifor Robu. Nichifor Robu was elected as member in the governance of L.A.N.C and of the National Christian Party after 1935. As a parliamentarian he distinguished himself through his violent manifestations. He was suspended twice from the legislative forum of Romania due to the violence he caused. He was a violent politician, manifesting himself as such, leading the propagandist teams of the L.A.N.C and P.N.C. spear men. He also asserted himself as a legionaries opponent. A rough, impulsive guy, he thought he had the right to cause any kind of scandal. He had a conflict with the metropolitan of Bucovina, with the leaders of the Jewish community, with different politicians from Bucovina or those who came in the region and with the legionaries. He was involved in violence from the election campaigns that resulted with victims. Even though he was arrested many times, he was never convicted for the violence he caused. Even if he drew himself back from the political life after 1938, he did not get away from the repression of the totalitarian regimes of the century, turning himself into a victim of the concentrationary Romanian system.
