The parental suffering which yesterday led brooding Herschel Grynszpan to attempt the murder of Ernst won Rath, brought new tragedy to his family tonight. Authorities arrested and jailed Grynszpan’s uncle, a Parisian tailor, and his wife for harboring an undesirable alien. Grynszpan had been ordered expelled from France last August.

Von Rath’s condition was reported critical tonight, but attending physicians said there was no change for the worse. Wounded in the chest and groin, he was under the care of Dr. Brandt, Chancellor Hitler’s personal physician, and Prof. Georg Magnus, director of the University of Munich Hospital Clinic, who arrived here today under the Fuehrer’s orders to give him all possible medical attention.
