Attempt to Bomb Jewish Maternity Hospital

Download PDF for this date

An attempt was made to wreck the Jewish Maternity Hospital here with a bomb.

The outrage is laid at the door of the Communists by the local Spanish press, but it is believed that the actual plotters are Spanish and Portuguese strikers.

Similar terrorization tactics were employed against a non-Jewish businessman, a Frenchman, Rousseau, whose garage was bombed.
