Twenty two year old Myer Abramovich was a Polish costermonger who was convicted of murdering thirty six year old Soloman and his wife Annie Millstein who was thirty seven at their restaurant in Spitalfields on 27 December, 1911.

They were stabbed to death and robbed of money and jewellery. The restaurant was then burnt to the ground in an attempt to hide the killings.

After being convicted, Abramovich confessed that he had committed the crime after losing all his money gambling and being heavily in debt. He was hanged in Pentonville by John Ellis and Albert Lumb on the 6 March 1912.


6 March 1912 - Myer Abramovich

Debt-ridden fruit and veg man Myer Abramovich killed then torched a restaurant-owning couple on their premises to cover up his crimes.

First he stabbed Solomon and Annie Millstein in their Spitalfields restaurant before making off with a stolen wad of cash, plus jewels. He then razed the restaurant to the ground to cover his tracks. Ultimately, his ploy failed and the law caught up with him and thatís when he crumbled and confessed all.

The 22-year-old hanged his head in guilt on this day in 1912 and his executioners at Pentonville were John Ellis and Albert Lum
