Download PDF for this date

Shots were fired from a speeding car at a synagogue in Helguera Street here today, slightly wounding a policeman guarding the Jewish house of worship against possible attack. The policemen returned the fire, but the attackers escaped.

Mark Turkow, representative of the World Jewish Congress in Latin America, returned here today from a visit to Bolivia and reported that the general situation of the Jews there is “quiet” now, despite anti-Semitic propaganda by ex-Nazis who had infiltrated into that country. Mr. Turkow said he found walls scribbled with slogans like “Glory to Hitler” and “We will revenge Eichmann’s death.” However, he added, leaders of the Bolivian Jewish community have assured him that Government authorities fight against any outbreaks of anti-Semitism.
