Bomb Wrecks Lwow Building; 2 Youths Hurt

Download PDF for this date

A bomb was thrown last night by anti-Semites into the building of the Zionist group Kadimah in Lwow, seriously injuring two Jewish youths and causing heavy damage to the building.

The two injured youths are Emanuel erbner, 13, and Ephraim Fortman, 14. They are both members of the Zionist sports organization which is situated in the same building.

The police so far have not succeeded in discovering the bomb throwers. It is believed, however, that they are members of an anti-Semitic youth organization.

Gedalia Blecher, a 50-year-old Jew, one of the victims of the anti-Jewish riots in Grodno, Poland, died today in the hospital from injuries received during the attacks. Blecher is the second fatality recorded as a result of the riots.

Jewish leaders here feel greatly disappointed over the fact that the government authorities have refused to reopen the Anti-Nazi Boycott Committee offices. Government officials explained that the offices were closed because of an anti-Nazi stamp which the Committee issued. This stamp has, however, been in circulation for many months and none of the government authorities had previously objected to it.
