Download PDF for this date

A court today sentenced a Jewess, Feiga Rachman, to a month in jail for telling a policeman that “Warsaw isn’t Przytyk” when the officer refused to arrest a woman she charged with stealing merchandise from a store operated by Miss Rachman’s mother. Przytyk was the scene last March 9 of a pogrom in which two Jews and a peasant were killed.
