Isaac Gruenbaum, Jewish Leader of Poland, is Attacked in Warsaw Street

Assault is Said to Have Political Background (Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Isaac Gruenbaum, former deputy in the Polish Sejm and Zionist leader in Poland, was assaulted last night by three unknown persons. The attack was made upon Gruenbaum when he was returning from a meeting of the Executive last night.

Three men who were, according to Gruenbaum’s description, Christian Poles, stopped him and beat him severely. At his cries a policeman arrived on the scene. In the meantime the culprits had disappeared.

It was stated that the assault may have a political background in connection with Gruenbaum’s plan to renew the bloc of national minorities at the forthcoming parliamentary elections.

Gruenbaum’s condition is not serious.
