Anti-Jewish excesses in Pomerania took place during the last few days, according to reports received here.

The excesses were particularly serious in the city Bromberg, where many Jewish passersby in the street were beaten and insulted. The police did not intervene.

In the town, Rowicz, the authorities refused to permit the local synagogue to be opened for the Rosh Hashanah services, with the result that the entire Jewish population and sixteen Jewish soldiers stationed there had no place in which to worship.
