6 Aged Jews, Held As Communists, Released in Warsaw

Download PDF for this date

Six aged Jews, arrested here early Sunday during traditional penitential services at a local synagogue, were released today.

The old men, known as pious and strictly orthodox Jews, were arrested on suspicion that they were Communists, following information by an unidentified person. A thorough investigation convinced the police that the accusation was entirely false.

The incident has aroused considerable resentment in Jewish circles here.
