Download PDF for this date

A gang of anti-Semites who have carried on a regime of terror against Jewish invalids and employees in Soviet institutions were arrested in Zhitomir by the Gepu, Soviet political police. The terrorists broke into the Jewish homes, demolished the household furnishings and demanded money. They even went so far as to openly attack the Jews in the streets. The gang is led by Korelny whose terrorist methods have made him notorious throughout the district.
