See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The Jews of Wegrow are mourning today the death of Isaac Pagura and Lazar Lass, who were murdered by a Polish captain and his four soldiers as they were innocently riding in an omnibus from Sokolow to Wegrow.

The Jewish residents of the town have called a mass meeting to protest the indifference of the government to the deed and to demand that the murderers be held to account for their act.
