Kovno Submerged: 300 Houses Under Water: Most Victims Jews

Download PDF for this date

The Jewish population of Kovno is suffering tremendously as a result of big floods which have practically submerged the Lithuanian capital. About 300 houses are already under water, most of them occupied by Jewish families. Efforts are being made to evacuate the inmates and save their property, but the losses, it is feared, will be immense.
