Anti-jewish Terror Resumed in Poland; Jews Murdered in Trains; No Mercy Shown Women

The murder of eight Jews by anti-Semitic terrorists in various parts of Poland during the last ten days was reported here today.

Four of these Jews, including three women, were dragged off a train which was halted by the terrorists between Lukow and Siedlce. Two other Jews, Israel Silberszajn and his 28-year-old wife Chanah, were also removed from a train and shot. A Polish woman teacher travelling on the same train pleaded in vain for mercy for Mrs. Silberszajn, an expectant mother.

A Jewish dentist, the only one in town, was shot dead in Kamiena-Gora by terrorists wearing the uniform of Gen. Anders’ army. In the town of Rychbach fascists murdered M. Zylberberg, the 25-year-old leader of the Jewish cooperative “Ichud”. More than 12,000 Jews and representatives of local authorities attended his funeral.
