Players of a Jewish team “Samson” were attacked and a number seriously injured, following a match with a Polish team “Sarmata” which was defeated.

Three Jewish players sustained such severe injuries they had to be sent to a hospital by ambulance. Three others required treatment. Those sent to the hospital are Jewish players named Fishel, Zan and Drogochinski.

Police had to escort the Jews from the field to prevent further attacks.
