Anti-Semitic practices in a Kieff factory are complained of by “Der Stern,” Yiddish Communist daily published here. In the factory, Scythe and Hammer, a group of workers attacked a Jewish fellow worker with iron clubs and subjected him to duckings in ice water. They finally compelled him to leave the factory.

The Communist group did not stop the perpetrators. Similar occurrences have also taken place in the Charkoff factory, Lenin.
