April 6, 1923
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Vengeance for the act of the Russians in executing the Catholic Vicar General Butchkavitch was meted out to Jews by the Polish anti-Semites today. The Poles attacked Jewish funerals and dispersed the mourners, and students belonging to the anti-Semitic organization “Rozwoj” maltreated a number of passers-by.

The newspaper “Dwa Grosze”, in an editorial today, declares the murder of Mgr. Butchkavitch was committed by “the Red Jewish tyrants” in order to destroy the Catholic faith.
