Kovno Police Raid Jewish Community

Police yesterday raided the premisesof the Jewish community of Ponivez because posters exhorting the Jewish population to observe the anti-German boycott made their appearance throughout the town overnight.

Pressure exerted by the German government on the Lithuanian authorities and retaliatory threats have led the government to take measures to curb the boycott campaign, resulting in the police action yesterday.

A number of community records were confiscated by the police in the raid.
