Polish Government Carries on Discriminatory Economic Policy Against Jews, is Charged

That the Polish Government, under the Premiership of Vladislaw Grabski, is carrying on a discriminatory anti-Jewish policy, particularly in its present efforts to regulate the economic problems of the country, was the charge made today by Jewish Deputy Reich, at the general session of the Diet, during a discussion on the budget.

Deputy Reich pointed out that the demands of the Jewish population in Poland are very moderate, and that it is easy to satisfy them; that since the Jews have no territorial aspirations, all that they want is that their civil and cultural rights he respected.

The speaker cited a number of incidents where the government had either ignored the economic interests of the Jewish population, or had directly acted against them.
