Nara Jailed for Attack on Rabbis

Download PDF for this date

Vladislaw Cielinski, Nara anti-Semite convicted of assaulting Rabbis Silberstein, Urfanger and Reinman, was sentenced yesterday to serve three days in jail.

Cieslinski was one of a number of Nara hooligans who made a practice of brutally beating aged rabbis during the height of the country-wide Nara anti-Semitic campaign last summer.

Hundreds of Jews were severely injured by Nara bands during that drive. The attacks ceased only when the government suppressed the Nara party after the assassination of Minister of the Interior Colonel Bronislaw Pieracki in July.
