Download PDF for this date

Every factory in Soviet. Russia contains-a gang which engages in systematic persecution of the Jewish workers, charges the Russian paper “Trud” The anti-Semitic workers conduct their program by taking away the workers’ lamps, smearing their faces with tar and complaining to the management that they are lazy.

Members of the Communist Party often participate in the persecutions. The feeling against Jewish workers is so deeply rooted that the Communist Party representatives do not dare to interfere, the paper declares.
