Jew Hurt in Buenos Aires by Fascist Thugs Who Invade Cafe to Attack Jewish Patrons

Download PDF for this date

A Jew was hurt here last night when a gang of fascist thugs invaded a cafe in the Jewish district and began insulting and attacking the patrons.

The thugs, who entered the cafe ostensibly to sell copies of Firmeza, anti-Semitic publication of the fascist Alianza Nacionalista Libertadora, began to beat the patrons with chairs and dishes when the Jews took issue with them. As they finally fled the scene the thugs fired several shots, none of which found their mark.
