Polish Anti-semite Given Additional Punishment for Calling Prosecutor “shaboth Goy”

Sekretarczyk, the well-known anti-Semitic leader of Posen, and responsible for many anti-Jewish excesses there, was sentenced to three months in jail for beating a Jewish woman.

Sekretarezyk, upon receiving sentence, called the State Attorney, who prosecuted him, a “Shaboth Goy” because of the fact that the Attorney, being a Pole himself, was prosecuting another Pole on behalf of a Jew. For this offense, Sekretarezyk received an addition three days sentence.
