Don Miners Tried for Anti-semitic Practices

Four miners in the Rostov-Don coal mines were tried by the local Soviet court on charges of anti-Semitic behavior toward their Jewish fellow-workers.

The trial was staged on a large scale and fifteen hundred workers witnessed the proceedings.

The verdict of the People’s Court was to expel two of the defendants from all workers’ organizations. The two others were found deserving a reprimand.

The synagogue at Briansk was converted into a workmen’s club.
