Poland Pensions Dr. Simon Askenazy

Dr. Simon Askenazy, famous Polish Jewish historian and former representative of the Polish Republic at the League of Nations, was given the status of emeritus, according to an announcement made in the Polish official gazette, “Monitor Polski.”

Dr. Askenazy was recalled from his post in Geneva in 1923, when the national democratic party was in power in Poland. He was presented with a gift in the amount of 80.000 Zlotys. The national democratic press expresses dissatisfaction with the Polish government’s action.
