Borscha Trial Postponed Again; Nov. 17 New Date

Download PDF for this date

Another postponement in the Borscha disturbances case was announced today, the trial being this time set for November 17. The postponement followed a new request submitted to the court appealing for a removal of the case from Satumare to Zalau, as the Jews fear anti-Semitic influence in the courts of Satumare. As few Jews live in Zalau, little anti-Semitism is in evidence there.

The Borscha disturbance arose out of a fire in the town of Borscha; many Jewish houses were burned. Seventeen Jews and over a score of peasants are being tried. The decision on the appeal to move the case is not yet known.
