Download PDF for this date

A Jew in Falticeni, Itzig Nuhem, was killed by a Cuzist agitator, George Gheorgesi, because he declared he would not vote for the Cuzist candidates.

The murder was committed in connection with the Cuzist election agitation.

Nuhem was beaten up and sustained severe head injuries to which he succumbed.

A protest was entered with the District chief, Titus Jonescu, by a delegation headed by the president of the Falticeni Kehillah. The latter promised to protect the Jews.
