See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Sentences of from two years to three months in jail were imposed upon 24 Russian workers in the sugar factories at Michaelovsk at the conclusion of a trial at Gluchoff, Ukraine. The workers were found guilty of torturing Jewish workers in the factory. Only a small percentage of the 2,000 employed are Jews.

The trial, in which the charge was anti-Semitism, lasted for four days and attracted wide attention. The verdict was issued at five o’clock in the morning. Hundreds crowded the court to hear the decision. Forty-five witnesses were called.
