Three Jewish children were burned to death and their parents fatally wounded when a gasoline tank in the village of Lubszakrulewska near Tomashow, exploded and set every house in the village on fire.

Twenty-five Jewish houses were demolished and more than 200 Jews lost all their possessions and are in desperate need of relief.
