An anonymous caller told wire services in Paris that the “Jewish Brigades” carried out the attack. He said “We know the Nazis. They are state nowhere and we will pursue them wherever they may hide.” The Jewish youths, who wore helmets and carried clubs, ambushed the neo-Nazis of a small railway station where they were waiting to board a train.
