Summary/Abstract: The subject of this paper is an episode of the Romanian Holocaust, the Legionary Pogrom in Bucharest, in the winter of 1941, 21-23 of January. My intention in this paper is to bring to the reader a general image of the Jewish victims of those days. I will do this through an empirical research using an S.P.S.S. (statistic program for social sciences) database comprising information from the death files of the victims, files found at the Forensic Institute in Bucharest. Moreover, this paper wants to offer a broader analysis framework of the Pogrom in Bucharest by also focusing on the historic circumstances of the Pogrom, with an accent on the economic, legislative and institutional aspects. I will try to develop this circumstances taking into account the events that preceded and anticipated the Legionary Pogrom, bringing into discussion the economic, legislative and institutional initiatives that were made against the Jewish during the national-legionary state, focusing on the manners in which these initiatives were applied and the consequences.
