2 Killed in Anti-jewish Outbreak in Polish Village

One Jew and a Ukrainian were killed today and an other Jew seriously wounded in a violent outburst of anti-Jewish excesses in the village of Makowska, near Skole, during memorial services for Ukrainian legionnaires who fell in 1915.

While 10,000 Ukrainians looked on, a gang of hoodlums attacked a Jewish photographer, Josef Lux, lynching him on the spot. A Ukrainian, Andre Isholota, was killed when he attempted to defend Lux.

Later the anti-Semites ran amok on neighboring roads, seriously wounding a Jewish cart driver named Shneur. He was taken to a hospital where he is reported in a dying condition.
