The White Russian Central Executive Committee at a plenary session voted to strengthen the fight against anti-Semitism in White Russia. The adoption of this resolution became necessary in view of the fact that despite the extensive campaign carried on in the Communist press against the anti-Semitic wave, a few cases of hooliganism are recorded daily.

In Bobruisk, a Jewish girl, an ambulatory nurse stationed near the factory Octiabr, committed suicide because of anti-Semitic persecutions against her. It was at the Octiabr factory that the Barshay affair occurred.
