U.S. Senators Enquire into Jewish Position in Boland

Download PDF for this date

Senator King, of Utah, and Senator Ladd, of North Dakota, here on their way to Russia, yesterday visited the headquarters of the National Counsil of Polish Jews and conferred over an hour with Deputy Gruenbaum, ranking Jewish member of the Polish Assembly, and M. Frostig, member for Lemberg. The Senators were accompanied by Representative Frear. They evinced considerable interest in the economic position of the Polish Jews, in the problem of emigration as it affects the Jewish population and the relation of the Jewish to the other non-Polish minorities. The question of the Jewish school system in Poland was also discussed.

The Jewish Council attaches great importance to the Conference with the United States Senators who were thus given an opportunity to obtain first hand information about the position of the Jews. The Council has promised to issue an official communique on the subject.
