Three Jews Face Death Sentence in Siberia

Three Jews, Dr. Kovler and Messrs. Averhuch and Dvorkin, are among the Soviet officials who face death as a result of charges of misappropriation of funds brought against them. Their trial on these charges started last Saturday in Novo Nikolaievsk, Siberia.

These officials were in charge of the Soviet health resorts in Siberia before their removal on the aforementioned charges.
