Download PDF for this date

Frieda Welkowyska, a Jewish girl, was fatally wounded yesterday and Abraham Rapaport received minor injuries when a bomb was thrown at a Jewish farm in the suburb of Grochow, where young Chalutzim (pioneers) are being trained as farm hands for work in Palestine.

The bomb was thrown by members of a non-Jewish organized group, four of whom were arrested by the police, Prior to the bombing the group attacked the farm with revolvers.

Police authorities are under the impression that those arrested are all members of the anti-Semitic Nara Youth Organization which has been suppressed by the government but which is continuing its activities illegally.
