Several Jews Beaten in Riot in Polish Town

Download PDF for this date

A half-blind and crippled old widow named Kuporman was one of several Jews badly beaten in anti-Semitic excesses today in the town of Nasilesk, in the Warsaw district.

Windows of Jewish houses were broken and a Jewish carpenter’s shop was demolished. They also attacked a Polish farmer who had his horses shod by a Jewish blacksmith. Several of the rioters were arrested.
