Boycott of Jews to Be Issue of Nationalist Party in Polish Election

(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Anti-Semitism and the economic boycott of Jews in Poland will be the issue of the forthcoming elections to the Polish Sejm insofar as the nationalistic parties are concerned.

It was learned from reliable sources today that at a meeting of leaders of the nationalistic parties held in Posen, the question was debated as to what issue is likely to secure success for the party. Several of the leaders expressed their doubt whether the issue of anti-Semitism and the economic extermination of the Jews would be successful at this time. However, the viewpoint of Roman Dmowski, leader of the national democratic party, who initiated the boycott policy in 1912, prevailed and it was decided that the next election campaign be waged under the slogan: “Boycott the Jews.”
