April 20, 1923
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Professor Zadri, Jewish soloist at a concert here, has sustained several serious head wounds and a number of Jews received lighter injuries, during an attack on the audience by anti-Semitic students who came from Jassy for the purpose. Police arrived too late to prevent any of the damage, later arresting members of the Jewish self-defence corps. Kolnik, a Jewish painter who visited America in the company of Rubin, another artist, is among those taken into custody.
