October 2, 1938 Massacre at Tiberias

Tiberias 1920sArabs broke into Tiberias town one night and massacred a number of Jewish women and children in circumstance of great brutality… it took us two hours to get to Tiberias, instead of the normal twenty-five minutes, and we found matters there in a mess. The district office, a synagogue, and several Jewish dwelling-houses were in flames, the streets were littered with dead but the attackers had withdrawn.”
