March 15, 1923
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Hooligans identified as members of the Polish reserve invaded the Jewish quarter of Przemysl and plundered several shops, brutally beating several Jews and injuring an elder woman.

The hooligans’ attempt to molest Jewish butchers however proved disastrous to themselves, as the butchers fought back with their knives wounding a few of the assailants.
