New Ritual Murder Trial Averted in Polish Village

Download PDF for this date

A new ritual murder agitation, which threatened when a three-year-old child was missing, was averted in Falencia, near Warsaw.

When the Christian child was missing in the village, the child’s mother, the owner of a coffee shop, accused the Jews of having kidnapped the child for ritual purposes. Fortunately for the peace of the population, the child returned from a nearby woods where it had wandered.
