Latvia Transfers Pupils in School ‘red’ Scare

Download PDF for this date

A majority of the pupils in the municipally-conducted Jewish schools were transferred to other schools today as the result of a debate in the municipal educational council alleging that Communist propaganda is being spread in the Jewish schools.

An immediate investigation of the charges was ordered, but the transfer of the Jewish pupils was carried out before the charges had been sifted.
