In a hospital here, slowly recovering from wounds he says were inflicted upon him by Nazis, is the head of a Polish-Jewish Congregation of the Gelsenkirschen District, Westphalia, just across the border.
According to the evidence submitted by him to the Polish Consul here, he received his injuries when the Nazis, surrounding the synagogue during a recent Passover service, rounded up all the worshippers and marched them through the streets to the Nazi prison.
There they were all compelled to kneel and keep their hands raised for twenty minutes. It was at this point that the head of the congregation, protesting, was beaten about the head and face. He then managed to cross the frontier into Holland.
