Lithuanian Government Organ Partially Admits “innocent Jews Suffered”

Download PDF for this date

Partial admission of the occurrence of serious anti-Jewish attacks in Slobodka, Kovno suburb, hitherto denied by the Lithuanian government and its ambassadors abroad, was made yesterday by the “Lietuvas,’ official government organ.

In an editorial published in the “Lietuvas,” it is declared that “the Communist activities at Shanz (another Kovno suburb) were followed by an unpleasant epilogue at Slobodka, where several innocent Jews also suffered.”
