Poland Blames Berlin Police for Pogrom

An official protest against the mistreatment and the plundering which Jewish citizens of Poland together with other Jews suffered during the pogrom in Berlin has been lodged by the Polish Ambassador with the Chancellor. More than 100 individual claims are cited by the Polish authorities showing that the police authorities far from defending the Jews that had been attacked went so far as to encourage the plunderers.

The intervention of the Consul General having been in vain, the Polish Government desires to know if the officials guilty of neglect had been punished. In conclusion the Polish Government demands reparation for the damages sustained.
