Jewish Club in Buenos Aires Tar Bombed; Police Find Leaflets by Anti-semitic Group

Four tar bombs were hurled against the facade of this city’s largest Jewish club, the Sociedad Hebraica Argentina, before dawn today. There was no damage apart from defacing the structure. Police found leaflets signed by the “Guardia Restauradora Nacionalista,” a local anti-Semitic group. Argentine Jews were asked by their representative body, the DAIA, to contribute generously for the victims of last week’s railroad disaster which took over 100 lives, the worst in Argentine history. “Only brotherly understanding from all sections of our people can comfort those who have suffered so terribly, the DAIA said. The organization also published the text of a letter it sent to the Soviet Ambassador, Iuri Volski on behalf of the 18 Georgian families who have appealed to the United Nations for help in emigrating to Israel. The DAIA said the Ambassador had refused to receive a delegation it sent.
