Lwow Jewess Dies of Burns After Attack

Download PDF for this date

Mrs. Sara Deichfeld, one of four persons injured here last week, when anti-Semitic students raided Jewish grocery stores and poured flaming acids into them, died in a hospital yesterday of burns.

The raiders imprisoned Mrs. Deichfeld and her husband and the grocer Freidman and his wife in the stores and left after locking the doors. Neighbors who saw the flames and heard the cries of the victims broke down the doors and rescued the four. The other three are still in the hospital in a serious condition.
