Download PDF for this date

The Jewish Deputies in the Polish Sejm, including the members of the Club of Jewish Deputies, the Pro-Government Jewish Deputies and those of other parties, have made a demand for the removal from their posts of the three principal executive officials in Lemberg : the Governor, the Chief of Police and the head of the Security Department. They also informed the Minister of Interior that they cannot trust the investigations at present being conducted in Lemberg on the Ministry’s instructions, so long as the investigation was under the authority of persons, who, the Jewish Deputies were convinced, themselves carried the responsibility for tolerating and for failing to suppress the disturbances as soon as they began to develop.
