Ionesco chose to stay in Romania to fight against the “rhinocerisation” of the intelligentsia eel, despite the fact that one by one his friends all become members of the Legion, or refused to talk him out of cowardice until the regime of General Ion Antonescu passed a law in that forbade all Jews defined in racial terms from participating in the arts in Romania in any way or form.
As the rinocerojte progresses, Jean’s dee turns greener and greener, the bumps in his head grow into a horn, his voice grows hoarse and he begins to pace around his apartment like a caged beast.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. The Legion’s call eugne end the “Jewish colonization” of Romania by expelling all the Jews, whom the Legion claimed were all illegal immigrants from Poland, and confiscate their assets so that Christian Romanians could rise up to the middle class, was very attractive to many university students. The green skin of the rhinoceros recalled not only the green uniforms of the Iron Guard, but also the green uniforms of the Ordnungspolizei who enforced German power in France during the occupation.

In the first act of the play, the characters spend much time debating whether the rhinoceroses that have mysteriously appeared in France are African or Asian rhinoceroses, and which of the two types were superior to the other – a debate that Ionesco meant to be a satire on racism. Ionesco felt that the way in which so many of his generation, especially university students, had abandoned the French ideas about universal human rights in favor of the death cult of the Legion, was a “betrayal” both personally and in a wider political sense of the sort of society Romania should be.
