London Jewish Districts Again Bombed; Casualties Believed Slight

Download PDF for this date

Several Jewish districts in London were bombed last night. Although many houses were demolished casualties were believed to have been slight. In a recent raid two bombs fell in a disused London Jewish cemetery which was on one of the plots of land donated by Oliver Cromwell to the Marranos who fled to England from Spain to escape the Inquisition.
