Delegation Calls on Polish Prime Minister; Complains Against Anti-jewish Terror in Posen

The plight of the Jewish population in Posen, the province formerly belonging to Germany and now a part of the Polish Republic, was described today by a delegation which called on Wladyslaw Grabski, Polish Prime Minister. The delegation, consisting of representatives of the Jewish Merchants Association in Warsaw, the Union of Jewish Merchants in Posen and the Union of Jewish Communities in Posen, complained bitterly against the terror and attacks carried on by bands organized by the anti-Semitic leader, Sekretarchik, against the expulsion of Jewish children from the Posen government and private schools and against the action of the Polish authorities in that territory, who confiscate Jewish synagogues and cemeteries.

In reply, Prime Minister Grabski stated that the Polish Government is considering the situation of the Jewish population in Posen and realizes that the present state of affairs is harmful to the interests of the Polish Republic. He promised to take action in the matter.
