Download PDF for this date

The reports of large scale attacks on the Jews of Kovel three weeks ago as reported in the Kovel papers are largely exaggerated and to some extent untrue, according to a statement in today Warsaw Yiddish daily, “Haint,” by Rabbi Chaim Moshe Twersky of Kovel. He says that the attacks were not anti-Semitic in origin and that the authorities carried out their duties properly.
