Bombings, Excesses Spread Terror in Bucovina

Download PDF for this date

Anti-Jewish excesses in the Bucovina district accompanied by bombings, spread terror today among the Jewish population and resulted in several injuries.

Several Jewish houses were bombed by Nationalists in Alberi near Succava, causing considerable property damage, but no injuries were reported. Jewish houses in Straca and Brodina, near Radauti, were demolished and their inhabitants beaten.

Members of Prof. Alexander Cuza’s anti-Semitic party in the village of Stratauti gave local Jews an ultimatum to leave the district within five days or be killed.
