Kowno Police Break Up Jewish Children’s Outing

June 4, 1923
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Seventy Jewish children were detained, 15 are still under arrest, and a number of teachers taken into custody, all because the outing which the children held outside of the city was arranged without due notification to the police. The picnic was surrounded by a body of district police who demanded the children show their passports, a number of them being beaten in the course of the search.
