Anti-semites Ravage Jewish Quarter

April 3, 1923
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The Jewish quarter of Jassi is a mass of ruins today following an invasion of the section by a mob of anti-Semitic disciples of Professor Cuza. The mob broke into the houses wrecking furniture. Virtually every window in the Jewish quarter was smashed.

The request that the government permit the opening of the Jewish theatre, where Jacob Kalich and Molly Picon, American Jewish actors were playing, and give it police protection has been denied and the actors, it is expected, will have to leave Roumania.
