Polish Government Outes Jewish Workers from Tobacco Industry

Download PDF for this date

Five hundred Jewish wokers, until recently employed in the famous tobacco factory of Schereschewsky at Grodno, were ousted, as a result of the Polish Government action in taking over the monopoly of the tobacco industry.

As soon as the Schereschewsky manufacturing plant came under the administration of the Polish monopoly authorities, an order was issued to the Jewish workers, asking them either to work on Saturday or to leave. A delegation of the Jewish Kahillah here, left to-day for Warsaw to urge the government to withdraw the order.
