Download PDF for this date

Jewish children attending the Jewish schools in Warsaw marched through the streets of the Jewish quarter to-day in celebration of Lag B’Omer, carrying blue-white banners and with bands playing.

All the Jewish schools were closed for the day, and the children were given an excursion on the River Vistula, six steamers being filled with the children.
