Despatches received here indicate that the desecration of the synagogue at Volkowischki was not perpetrated by vandals as was originally reported.
It has been revealed that Rachel Stropolsky, the young girl found unconscious outside the synagogue was mentally deranged, and that she shut herself up in the Aron Kodesh, remaining inside until she reached the point of suffocation. The desecration of the synagogue is attributed to her.
