Residences and shops of Jews in Freystadt, West Prussia, were plundered by a crowd, numbering several hundred persons, say reports reaching here today. The anti-Jewish attack bore all the ear-marks of an organized pogrom, the assault being signalized by the ringing of four bells. National soap-box orators harangued the crowd in the market place, urging the more backward among them to pillage the Jews’ property, Order was restored on the arrival of the militia.
Two plunderers were shot down and several others wounded in Neusazzoder when an anti-Semitic mob stormed Jewish shops emptying them completely of their contents.
A company of schutzpoleizei had to fire on the crowd before it could be dispersed. Several hand grenades were thrown by the police.
