Poland Protests Attack on Two Jews in Danzig

Download PDF for this date

The Polish government received a denial today from the Senate of Danzig that two Polish Jews had been attacked on July 5 while endeavoring to protect Rabbi Sagilowitch of Danzig from the assault of five hooligans, two of them dressed in Nazi uniforms.

The denial was issued by the Danzig Senate after a protest had been entered by the Polish High Commissioner in Danzig, acting upon instructions from his government.

In Polish circles, however, it is believed that the denial was issued under pressure from the police.
