Download PDF for this date

The fifteen-year-old daughter of M. Frei, a Jewish resident of the village, Bermiechow, Galicia, was kidnapped and taken to a Catholic convent. She has not been traced, but the kidnappers, village youths, when they carried her off, shouted that they were taking her to be converted to Catholicism.

Her anxious parents appealed to Deputy H. Farbstein of Warsaw to secure her release.
