Non-jew Named Commissar of Polish Kehillah

For the first time in Polish Jewish annals, a non Jew has been appointed Commissar of a Jewish Community by the government.

This unusual incident occurred in the city of Bromberg, known also as Bidgacz. The District Governor dismissed the administration of the Kehillah in Bromberg and appointed the non-Jew the administrator.

A Jewish delegation has been sent by the Bromberg community to Warsaw to make representations to the central government with regard to this incident.
