Attempt to Bomb Cologne Synagogue As Anti-jewish Terrorization Holds Forth in Germany

A bomb was discovered yesterday in a synagogue at Cologne. Police arrived in time to remove the bomb before it exploded.

The bombing plot is laid to the Nazis whose headquarters are located opposite the synagogue.

Intense excitement prevails among the Jewish population, in view of this and general terrorization tactics against Jews.

Many Jews were attacked at the gate of another synagogue in Cologne as they were leaving for home. Several Jews were able to elude the attackers by seeking refuge in the synagogue.

Rabbi D. C. Carlebach lodged a complaint with the police.

As a result of these incidents, increased police patrols are stationed throughout the city.

Bombs were placed outside Jewish shops in Osterroda and Srengfurt and in the Silesian town of Strehlen.

The bombs in Osterroda failed to explode.
