Jews Bombed in Bulgarian Town

June 25, 1937
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Two bombs, apparently thrown by anti-Semitic demonstrators, exploded harmlessly today within a half-hour of each other in the town of Yarna.

One of them went off at a Jewish co-operative bank, the Ahavat-Chaim, and the other at the home of a prominent Jewish resident named Pelossow. No one was hurt, and the damage was slight.

The Union for Action, Fascist organization recently formed by a professor at the Agricultural Institute of Sofia named Kontardjiev, along the lines of Hitler’s storm troops, with an anti-Semitic and anti-foreign program, suffered a check when the Minister of the Interior refused to ratify its statutes.

Authorities confiscated copies of an anti-Semitic pamphlet published by the National Socialist Society.
