Download PDF for this date

TWO JEWISH TAILORS WERE INJURED TODAY AS MEMBERS OF ANTI-SEMITIC YOUTH ORGANIZATIONS, MOSTLY STUDENTS, CLASHED WITH SOCIALISTS AFTER A WORKERS’ DEMONSTRATION IN MEMORY OF GABRIEL NARUTOWICZ, FIRST PRESIDENT OF THE POLISH REPUBLIC, ASSASSINATED DEC. 16, 1922, BY A NATIONALIST.

DURING ONE CLASH A SHOT WAS FIRED FROM A REVOLVER, WOUNDING ISAAC MESSER, 20-YEAR-OLD TAILOR. YOUTHS DISTRIBUTING ANTI-SEMITIC LEAFLETS ON WARSAW’S CENTRAL STREETS STABBED A 40-YEAR OLD TAILOR, ISRAEL ROSENBERG, WHO WAS LATER REPORTED IN SERIOUS CONDITION.

A GANG OF ENDEKS YESTERDAY INVADED THE POLYTECHNIC INSTITUTE, MADE SEVERAL ANTI-SEMITIC SPEECHES AND BEAT UP AND OUSTED A NUMBER OF JEWISH STUDENTS.

STUDENT MEMBERS OF THE NARA, ENDEK AND CAMP OF NATIONAL UNITY PARTIES ARE ACTIVELY PARTICIPATING IN AN INTENSIFIED ANTI-JEWISH CAMPAIGN BEING CONDUCTED IN CENTRAL SECTIONS OF WARSAW. THEY DISTRIBUTE ANTI-SEMITIC LEAFLETS AND ENGAGE IN MASS PICKETING OF JEWISH SHOPS.
