Serious attacks upon the Jews of Thorn, Pomerania, has been averted at the last moment, according to information just received by the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, when one of those involved in the plot revealed details of the plans to a Jewish merchant of the local community.

Members of the local Endek organization were behind the plans laid for the attack on the entire Jewish community and at the head of the conspirators was the president of the Christian Merchants’ Union Januszkewitch and the municipal officer Przybojewski. The latter had organized a special group of unemployed who were to participate in the attack, which was to be signalized by the breaking of a number of Jewish windows. It was one of the unemployed who revealed the plot and who admitted that he had already received fifty zloty for the help he was to have rendered.
