Download PDF for this date

An unidentified member of the International Club, an organization ordered dissolved some time ago by the authorities, was sentenced to six months’ imprisonment yesterday for alleging, in the course of a conversation that Jews were still being subjected to mass arrests and carried away in trucks, with only one in ten surviving the experience. He is also charged with saying that a rabbi was tortured, his beard pulled out and his fingers chopped off his hands.
