President of Kolo Scores Polish Government’s Lack of Interest in Jewish Problems

Strong criticism of the government’s lack of interest in the Jewish problems, a lack of interest which would make it appear that no Jewish problems existed, was uttered yesterday by Dr. Joshua Thon, president of the Club of Jewish Deputies, at the opening session of the Sejm.

Dr. Thon urged the government to change its attitude before the complete ruination of the Jews renders aid useless.

All economic reforms of the government are carried out at the expense of the Jews, Dr. Thon said. The otherwise stronghanded and proud government was suddenly frightened by the alarms raised by the National Democrats with regard to the modification of the Sunday trading law, Dr. Thon emphasized.

The government stands by passively, he asserted, while the Jews suffer the greatest hardship.
