Chassidim Attack Jewish Workers for Violating Holidays

Download PDF for this date

The Jewish Workers’ club of Otwock, near Warsaw, was the scene of fighting when Chasidim attacked the members of the club.

The assailants were indignant because the club carried on as usual paying no attention to the Jewish holidays. Ten chassidim and one workman were seriously wounded. They were removed to a Warsaw hospital.
