The Jewish quarter of Zlotschew near Lutotow, which was recently the scene of a pogrom against the Jews in which more than 100 Jews were mobbed, was swept by fire Firday night. Fifty Jewish families are homeless.

The possibility that the fire may be the work of anti-Semitic incendiaries is being probed.
