Download PDF for this date

Leaving a note stating that the German professor Schloffer drove him to death, Dr. Josef Gach, assistant to Prof. Schloffer in the German surgical clinic here, committed suicide today.

Dr. Gach also left a letter in which he charged that the medical faculty at the German University here “is making the life of Jewish students and internes intolerable” in the hope of driving them out of the university.
