25 Jewish Houses Razed in Rumanian City

Scores of Jewish families were made homeless tonight when fire gutted 25 houses in Radauti in the Dorohi district of Moldavia. Radauti has been the scene of recent anti-Semitic disorders.

Several of the victims of the fire attempted to commit suicide by throwing themselves into the flames.

Peasants in the town of Sibiu attacked Herman Kinzlicher, 64-year-old rabbi, as he was leaving the synagogue, dragged him through the street by the beard and beat him. He was finally rescued by bystanders.
