Fragments of a skeleton unearthed by workmen in digging beneath the foundation of a synagogue in Bebera has aroused great excitement in the town.

So-called experts were summoned following the discovery of the bones, and their conclusion is that the skeleton is of a man who died from violence, perhaps a century ago.

The anti-Semitic press is devoting a great amount of space to the find.
