Endeks Resume Attacks on Jews

Anti-Semitic excesses which began at Cieszyn Tuesday evening and lasted until late Wednesday night were renewed last night, the Warsaw Courier reports today.

Twenty persons, many of them students and the rest members of other participating groups, have been arrested, the Courier says. A number of Jewish shops in suburb of Cieszyn were demolished.

Earlier reports said that National Democratic sympathizers had attacked a Revisionist Brith Trumpeldor group in meeting, thus bringing about a street fight, following which the Endeks had made it a point to smash as many windows in Jewish houses as possible. Among the buildings thus discriminated against were the offices of the Zionist organization and two synagogues.

An investigation by the Katowice police is understood to be in progress.
