Warsaw (Mar. 30)
The campaign to overcome the economic crisis and to alleviate its effects, which have hit very hard the economically weaker populations all over the world, cannot be a task for the Government alone, but must be undertaken by the entire public, the Prime Minister, Colonel Slawek, says in a message addressed to Mr. Jacob Landau, the Managing Director of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, who is now staying in Poland, transmitted through the Chief of the Press Bureau of the Prime Minister’s Office.
On the instructions of the President of the Council of Ministers, Colonel Valery Slawek, I have the honour to transmit to you the following statement by the Prime Minister, the Chief of the Press Bureau writes.
The Polish Government is carrying on this campaign with vigour and determination, the Prime Minister’s message continues, but at the same time it welcomes every expression of positive social initiative taken along this direction. The relief activity, which is conducted on behalf of, European Jewry by the Jewish public of the United States, finding its most visible expression in the work of the Jewish Joint Distribution Committee of America, is well known to me, and I have the utmost respect for it. It stands not only as a model of positive social activity, but also as a fine expression of humanity and of human solidarity.
