(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Several Jewish residents of the town Dobrzyn in the District of Warsaw were injured in anti-Jewish excesses resulting from a ritual murder tale.

The agitation started when a four-year-old Polish girl, Julja Goman, was found injured at the Jewish cemetery near the town. Rumors were spread immediately that the girl had been attacked by Jews for ritual purposes. The Christian population stormed Jewish houses, attacking many. The police intervened and restored order.
