Endeks Terrorize Warsaw Traders

Download PDF for this date

Intermittent acts of terrorism against Jewish shopkeepers in the Christian neighborhoods of this city have been resumed by Endek, National Democratic youths, who, in order to escape arrest have adopted the practice of smashing windows by throwing stones from passing tramcars.

It is noteworthy that the Gazeta Warszawska, organ of the Endeks, in publishing a list of the windows which have been damaged, also included the names of a number of shops which were not attacked, thus indicating that a previously prepared plan for these activities exists but is not being executed in its entirety.

Despite precautions taken by the Endeks, police arrested three students, including one woman, for breaking the windows of a Jewish shop which had been especially marked. A number of shops had been similarly marked for several days, but the significance of the marks was unknown until the three were arrested.
