Jail 3 Soviet Workers for Persecuting Jew

Download PDF for this date

Three Russian workers in a suburb of Moscow were sentenced today to ten years imprisonment each and were deprived of their civil rights, for persecuting a Jewish worker.

The State’s attorney demanded that the highest measure of punishment be meted out to the three as a warning to others. The persecution took place in the factory where the Jewish worker is employed.
