Bomb Terrorization Against Jews Assumes Organized Character in Germany

Download PDF for this date

A bomb was exploded early this morning before the synagogue at Kiel, wrecking the entrance to the synagogue, causing serious damage to the interior and shattering a house situated opposite the edifice.

The bomb, which exploded at three A. M., also caused damage to the adjacent water works and broke the windows of many houses.

The bomb terror against the Jews is assuming an organized character in many parts of Germany.

Last night a hand grenade was thrown into the house of a Jewish merchant, Lehmann, in Konstadt, Upper Silesia. No one was injured, but considerable property damage was wrought.

Similarly, bombs were thrown into Jewish stores in Ortelsburg, East Prussia, damaging the stores of Jews named Molutzki, Behr and Mendell. All the windows in these shops were shattered.

In Neidenburg a Jewish merchant was attacked and sustained such severe injuries he had to be taken to a hospital. None of those responsible for the outrages have been apprehended headquarters, so that charges may be instituted against the offenders.
