Krantz Was Also Known As Writer Jacob Rombro

Post by Karen on Tue 2 Mar 2010 - 0:59

Philip Krantz, who was born Yakov (Jacob) Barukhovich Rombro at Khodaki, Podolia in 1858, testified at Elizabeth Stride's inquest. Here is his testimony:

Philip Krantz (who affirmed) deposed: I live at 40, Berner-street, and am editor of the Hebrew paper called "The Worker's Friend." I work in a room forming part of the printing office at the back of the International Working Men's Club. Last Saturday night I was in my room from nine o'clock until one of the members of the club came and told me that there was a woman lying in the yard.
[Coroner] Had you heard any sound up to that time? - No.
[Coroner] Any cry? - No. Or scream? - No.
[Coroner] Or anything unusual? - No.
[Coroner] Was your window or door open? - No.
[Coroner] Supposing a woman had screamed, would you have heard it? - They were singing in the club, so I might not have heard. When I heard the alarm I went out and saw the deceased, but did not observe any stranger there.
[Coroner] Did you look to see if anybody was about - anybody who might have committed the murder? - I did look. I went out to the gates, and found that some members of the club had gone for the police.
[Coroner] Do you think it possible that any stranger escaped from the yard while you were there? - No, but he might have done so before I came. I was afterwards searched and examined at the club.

Here is some additional information I found on this interesting individual. Here is his death announcement from the New York Times.

Philip Krantz, Writer.

J. Rombro, better known by his pseudonym of Philip Krantz, a member of the editorial staff of the Jewish daily Forward, died suddenly of heart disease at 1 a.m. Tuesday at his home at 2,008 Hughes Avenue, the Bronx. He had worked as usual on Monday and showed no signs of illness.
Mr. Rombro, who was 65 years old, was also better known as a writer of popular books on scientific subjects. He began his newspaper career in London more than thirty years ago and had served as editor of several working-men's newspapers. The funeral will be held at his late home on Thursday morning.
