Annual Market Day at Zloczow Passes Without Disturbance Despite Continued Anti-jewish Agitation Than

The annual market-day which was held to-day at Zloczow, where the anti-Jewish excesses took place on Thursday, on Corpus Christi Day, passed without any disturbances, despite continued anti-Jewish agitation, thanks to the vigilance and energy of the police.

It has been established that the prime movers in the agitation which led to the excesses on Thursday were the teachers at the local elementary school and members of the Sterzelec and Sokol nationalist sports organisations, the Zloczow Jewish Community has notified the Jewish National Council here. As a protest, the Jewish population are keeping their children from attending the school, and all Jewish shops and workshops are being closed for one day.

The Police Commissioner has informed the Jewish Community that the trial of those who are charged with participation in the anti-Jewish excesses will be held next week.

The Jewish National Council has transmitted the communication from the Zloczow Jewish Community to the Ministers of Education and of the Interior, asking that the teachers should be removed from their posts, and that all the guilty persons should be punished.
