Download PDF for this date

Members of the Military Sports Club yesterday attacked Jewish spectators at a match between soldiers and the Maccabee in the village of Taczew.

Between the quarters of the game, the soldiers hurled insulting epithets at the Jewish athletes. Finally aroused to such a pitch by their own agitation, the soldiers fell upon the Jewish spectators and beat them.

The match was forced to suspend. A complaint to the local authorities was submitted by the Maccabee.
