April 7, 1964
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Police here today were investigating an outbreak of anti-Semitic vandalism in a part of Paris densely populated with Jews, where the Agudath Hakehiloth Synagogue was smeared with swastikas, while a number of Jewish homes were daubed with anti-Jewish slogans.

The synagogue building was only recently designated by the French Ministry of Culture as a historic shrine.

At the intervention of the League for Franco-Israeli Friendship, Interior Minister Roger Frey has personally ordered the police to do all in its power to bring the culprits to justice.
