Dozens of Jewish travelling pedlars have been set upon during market day in the township of Miejska-Gorka, in the district of Posen, and their entire stock-in-trade has been carried off, leaving them completely destitute. The Federation of Jewish Small Traders in Poland is intervening with the central authorities in Warsaw on behalf of the victims.
