Poland Dissatisfied with Britain’s Reply on Palestine

Download PDF for this date

The reply of the British foreign office to the inquiry of the Polish embassy in London regarding the stoppage of immigration to Palestine last May is not satisfactory to the Polish government, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency is informed today. Government circles consider that the recent release of 1,500 certificates has nothing to do with the suspension of 2,300 certificates last May which prompted 2,000 Jews to liquidate their business in Poland in the hope of being able to proceed to Palestine. It is therefore believed possible that the Polish government will ask its ambassador in London to intervene again.
