See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

A public trial of the “Unknown Jew” who is evading his responsibilities by refusing to contribute to Jewish campaigns was held here under the auspices of the Jewish Youth Committee for Relief and Reconstruction. There was no verdict issued, but the judges issued an appeal to those “accused” that they change their attitude to Jewish needs and contribute for Jewish relief work, for the Red Cross and for Palestine.
