Pole Sentenced to Eight Years for Murder of Jew

A sentence of eight years in prison at hard labor was meted out today by the local court to Antoni Kowalczik, a Pole, for the murder of Israel Speiregen, a Jew, six months ago. Speiregen was killed because Kowalczik said the Jew spoke Yiddish too loudly on a street and that was offensive to Kowalczik’s “Polish ears.”
