Download PDF for this date

Six Jews were injured today in disorders that broke out in Warsaw, Lodz, Karczew, Bialytok and Kriniza, near Krakow.

A Jewish glazier, Isaiah Sklowoski, and a tailor, Aaron Broker, were given medical attention here after they had been attacked by anti-Semites.

Three Jews were beaten up in Lodz. They were Melech Teifel, who suffered a concussion of the brain; Natan Dyerman, who sustained knife wounds, and Moshe Sommerstein, wounded in the head.

In Karczew, members of the anti-Semitic Nationalist party picketed Jewish shops, refusing admittance to Christian customers. They smashed windows of Jewish houses and injured 70-year-Old M. Kaufman with a knife.

Bialystok anti-Semites smashed windows of the offices of the local Jewish community and of a home for the aged. In Kriniza, rioters smashed windows of Jewish houses. Krakow police arrested five Nationalist leaders after searching the offices of the party.
