Instigators of Slovakian Anti-jewish Riot Arrested; Will Be Tried by Peoples Tribunals

Dr. Josef Letrich, co-chairman of the Slovak Naional Council, disclosed today that a number of participants in the anti-Semitic rict in the town of Topolcany, in which 68 Jews were injured, have been arrested and will be tried by peoples tribunals.

“Although we have had some misgivings about the establishment of labor camps,” he said, “I think that they would be the most effective way of re-educating the instigators of these ricts.” He expressed the belief that the Topolcany incident was the “climax of an anti-Jewish drive.”
