The students then proceeded to the Kadezia Street where they looted Jewish shops and smashed windows.

Jews were also attacked in Kostuszaka Park and Nikolai Street.

Shops owned by non-Jews, with Jewish appearing names, displayed huge posters announcing that they were not owned by Jews, in an effort to prevent attack.

Serious disturbances took place in the suburbs of Lemberg where the Jews were thrown out of suburban trains.

One of those injured during the events of the last week, a Jewish student, Ostrower, is in a hopeless condition.

Other Jewish injured include one B. Aspen, aged seventy-eight, Moritz Aspen, Nahum Schwarzer, Simon Botsh, a former captain in the Polish Army, Moritz Gottesman, Nachman Zwerdlin, Levy Grossman, Israel Paster, Leon Sapiepa, Nachum Feder and Benjamin Witlin.
