Deny Poland is Sending Jewish Delegation Here to Bolster Trade and Credit

Download PDF for this date

An unofficial denial was issued today to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency by the Polish foreign ministry concerning the report in the mid-day edition of the Warsaw Yiddish daily, “Haint,” that the Polish government was sending a delegation of prominent Polish Jews to the United States in order to influence American Jews to support Poland’s credit and trade.

The “Haint’s” report said that the delegation was comprised of Deputy Herschel Farbstein, Dr. Joshua Thon, Adolph Trusker and M. Hausner. According to the story in the “Haint” the Polish government believes that American Jewish financiers are in a position to help Poland and it calculates that such a delegation will be able to interest American Jewish merchants in importing goods from Poland. The delegation is alleged to have been organized at the special request of the Polish embassy in Washington.

Inquiries by the Jewish Telegraphic Agency at the office of Deputy Farbstein and other Jewish leaders here brought the information that they were unaware of any such delegation.
