Jewish Deputies Favor Broad Powers for Bartel Government

(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The Club of Jewish Deputies will vote for the proposal to grant broad powers to the Bartel government, according to a statement made by Deputy Isaac Gruenbaum in the debate in the Sejm yesterday.

The parliament debated at length the authorization proposal. In his statement Deputy Gruenbaum said that the declaration of Prime Minister Bartel at Monday’s session of the Sejm was the first open statement to the effect that the anti-Semitic economic policy is harmful to the Polish state. “The Club of Jewish Deputies will vote for the authorization proposal, but on condition that this power be given only to the Bartel government,” Deputy Gruenbaum declared.

Deputy Chrucki, a Ukrainian opposed to the authorization proposal interjected, “Every Pole has his own Jews.”
