SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

Five Jewish passengers were dragged from a train between Nowy Sacz and Cracow this week by an anti-Semitic band and taken to a neighboring wood where they were shot, it was reported today from Cracow.

The armed fascists entered the train and checked the identity documents of all the travelers. The five Jews among the passengers were separated from the rest and ordered out at the Zaretta station, from where they were taken to the woods. Their bodies were found and taken to Nowy Sacz for burial, the report said.
