Jews Excluded from Latvian Defence Corps

(Jewish Telegraphic Agency Mail Service)

At the last meeting of the Sejm, Deputy Dr. Meisl of the Jewish Socialist Party “Bund,” drew the attention of the Deputies to a secret circular issued by the Ministry of the Interior which had come into his possession, ordering the exclusion of all Jews from the Latvian Self-Defence detachments. The Jewish members, according to the circular, should not be readmitted until they had been subjected to a rigorous control and a close examination as to their antecedents.
