    Apart from Neumann four other men were also attacked by Grafton Thomas. The incident had taken place on 28th December on the occassion of Hanukkah in the house of Rabbi Chaim Rottenberg. Thomas had used a machete to attack Neumann and the rest. The machete had pierced Josef Neumann’s skull and damaged his brain.
