THE JEWISH POPULATION OF DANZIG, ESTIMATED AT LESS THAN 5,000, WAS IN PANIC TODAY AFTER THREE DAYS OF NAZI RIOTS IN WHICH MANY WERE BEATEN, SHOPS SACKED AND WINDOWS OF STORES AND HOMES BROKEN.

JEWISH LEADERS HERE WERE AFRAID TO COMMUNICATE WITH JEWISH ORGANIZATIONS OUTSIDE THE FREE CITY. A REPRESENTATIVE A JEWISH RELIEF ORGANIZATIONS CAME HERE TO STUDY THE SITUATION ON THE SPOT.

GERMAN INSURANCE COMPANIES WERE REPORTED TO HAVE REFUSED TO COMPENSATE JEWISH MERCHANTS WHOSE SHOPS WERE DAMAGED DURING THE DISORDERS.
