Download PDF for this date

The village of Tulski in the Lemberg district of Poland was shocked today by the ghastly murder of a Jewish couple, Jonah and Channah Diamand. The assassins, reported to be Ukrainian anti-Semite terrorists, broke into the home of the victims last night, shot them, soaked the corpses in gasoline and set them ablaze.
