May 6, 1947
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Restitution to the Jewish-owned firm of Graetzer, Morie and Sons of a factory in the town of Mohelnice taken from them by the Nazis was forcibly resisted by the factory’s employees, it was reported here today. The Graetzer family emigrated to Palestine during the Nazi occupation and several members served in the Czech Army with distinction. The Moravian National Committee ordered the factory returned, but the employees, encouraged by the government-appointed factory administration, refused to allow the owners to take possession.
