Download PDF for this date

Four Soviet citizens who are believed to have been Jews have been shot for alleged “speculation, ” and five others, also believed Jews, were given long prison sentences for similar “economic crimes, ” according to reports from Moscow received here today. Their trial took place in Kishinev.

The latest victims of Soviet execution squads, not otherwise identified, even by first names, were –according to the report from Moscow–Palanker, Tabak, Rabinovitch and Goldenstein. Prison terms ranging from six years to 12 years were meted out to the second group, convicted in the same trial, named Serebnitski, Uchitel, Milenstein, Sudman and Gorbaty. All the names seemed Jewish to observers here as well as in the Soviet Union.
