One Killed, Another Suicide, Many Undergo Torture in Gunzenhausen

New anti-Semitic disorders of a most serious nature have broken out in Gunzenhausen, Germany, according to authentic reports received here today. One Jew was so brutally tortured that he hanged himself in desperation. Another Jewish victim was found with four knife-wounds in his heart.

Despite the pogrom terror raging in the town, German authorities have failed to arrest a single one of the aggressors, it is learned, while eleven badly-wounded Jews have been taken into “protective arrest” by the police.

Owing to the atmosphere of terror which reigns in the town, it was found impossible to obtain statements from Jewish residents.

(Gunzenhausen is in Bavaria, forty miles southwest of Nuremberg.)
