Anti-semitic Attacks Renewed After Codreanu’s Release

Download PDF for this date

Following the release of Zelea Codreanu, anti-Semitic agitator who was acquitted on charges of inciting to riot and murder, anti-Semitic disturbances and incendiary fires have again broken out in various parts of Bessarabia, particularly at Baltzi, Soroca and Urejhev. At Baltzi students attacked the house of M. Jardovsky, the richest Jew in the town, seriously wounding him and two other members of his family. The house was finally set on fire.

M. Beshan, an engineer who is a supporter of Professor Cuza, is also busy inciting the peasantry around Baltzi and Soroca. In the meantime the authorities have permitted the Cuzists to make plans for a congress at Baltzi next Thursday with the consent of Dr. Alexander Vayda Voevod, minister of the interior. This has aroused fear among the Jews. The police in some of the villages are participating in the beating of Jews. Jacob Dreiser was badly mauled by a crowd of anti-Semites.
