Anti-semitic Editors in Warsaw Lose Appeal in Gruenbaum Libel Suit

(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The sensational libel trial against the editors of two Polish anti-Semitic newspapers, instituted by Deputy Isaac Gruenbaum, came to an end today.

The court of appeals confirmed the sentence imposed by the lower court of one month’s imprisonment on the editors of the “Gazeta Warszawska” and the “Rzecz Pospolita.”

The two newspapers published a report in 1922, accusing Deputy Gruenbaum of disloyalty to the Polish state and of conducting anti-Polish propaganda during alleged conferences in London and in Paris. During that period, the campaign of anti-Semitic leaders in Poland reached its peak and the leged of the existence of an “anonymous Jewish empire which directs its activities against the interests of the Polish Republic” was the dominant note.
