Economic Crisis in Poland Depopulates Summer Residential District

The summer residential district of Otwock, which is usually all filled with Jewish guests during the summer and spring months, is completely deserted now on account of the severe economic crisis prevailing in Poland.

The proprietors of the villas have reduced their rentals 50%, but even this has not proven sufficient to attract tenants.
