Isaac Hirsch, 33 a member of the first legionnaires of Marshal Pilsudski, died here today as the result of injuries he suffered when he threw himself under a railroad train. Hirsch, who has been living in Oswiecim, committed suicide because he vainly tried for many years to obtain a position with the government.
