Jews Use Christian Blood for Building Their Succoth: New Cry in Polish Village Creating Panic Among

Jews use Christian blood for building their Succoth for their Feast of Tabernacles, was the new cry raised in the village of Plivk, in the district of Siedlice, following the disappearance there of a Christian boy of 15 years of age. A peasant named Toszsewski went about telling the other peasants that the Jews must have kidnapped the boy and killed him to have his blood for their Succoth. The peasants adopted a threatening attitude towards the Jews, who became frightened and notified the police headquarters in the next town. The Police Commandant came down with a big police reinforcement and after a search in the villages around, the boy was discovered in his uncle’s house in an adjoining village. Toszsewski has been arrested.
