Download PDF for this date

A Pole named Jan Anczak was arrested today for the murder of Simon Chelmner, 22-year-old son of an orthodox Jewish leader, during anti-Semitic disorders last Thursday. Police said Anczak killed Helmner with a knife near the Nationalist Club here after listening to an inflammatory address by a Catholic priest Trzeciak. The club was padlocked.
