Download PDF for this date

Salomon Rubin, a young Jewish workman who was arrested for fighting during the anti-Jewish outbreak in Vilna last November, has been sentenced to three years’ imprisonment, the severest sentence yet imposed in connection with the November disturbances.

Rubin was accused of having beaten a Christian student named Razanowicz. Rubin admitted that he had beaten Razanowicz, but said that Razanowicz had been maltreating a Jewish woman, and he had given Razanowicz a hiding to make him leave the woman alone.
