Judge Jacob Teitel, the 80 year old President of the Federation of Russian Jews in Germany, was shot at in a railway carriage while travelling to-day from Nuremberg to Ausburg with Dr. Spiegel. The window of the compartment was smashed, and Judge Deitel and Dr. Spiegel were covered with broken glass, but fortunately they have escaped injury.

The conductor of the train has declared in his deposition to the police in Augsburg that the shots were fired by a group of Hitlerists engaged on a walking tour.
