Download PDF for this date

News reached here yesterday of fierce anti-Jewish rioting by Endeks in several towns in the vicinity of Radom in the course of which four rioters were killed and many wounded by police who fired into a mob which refused to disperse.

The principal rioting occurred in the town of Pryzysucha where fifteen Jewish market stalls were demolished by the mob, windows of Jewish homes were smashed and many Jewish traders were injured.

When police reinforcements arrived the following morning they were attacked by an angry armed mob which collected swiftly from neigh-

boring villages. Unmindful of a warning volley fired over its heads, the mob pressed the attack, firing directly into the police ranks. The police returned the fire with a volley into the thick of the crowd, which dispersed leaving four dead and many wounded in the streets.

The chief instigator of the anti-Jewish excesses and the attack on the police was arrested and complete order was restored today.
