Download PDF for this date

The Court of Appeal of Clausenberg yesterday upheld the verdict of the lower court vindicating the defendants in the Borscha case, which in 1930 caused a furor.

Anti-Semitic incendiaries set fire to the Jewish quarter of the town in July, 1930.

The lower court vindicated all the defendants, ordering only Constantin Danila, anti-Semitic leader, to pay a fine of 5,000 lei.
