Warsaw (Dec. 17)
The Polish government is charged with ignoring the problems of the Jews and of so far persisting in this attitude as to permit excesses against the Jews to occur under the very eyes of the police, by Deputy Heinrich Rosmarin, vice president of the Club of Jewish Deputies.
The charges against the Polish government were preferred today by the Jewish Deputy in the course of an address delivered before the Budget Committee of the Sejm.
The periodically recurring anti-Jewish excesses fail to meet with suitable opposition on the part of the authorities, Deputy Rosmarin asserted in support of his charges.
The anti-Semitic agitation of the National Democrats enjoys protection from censorship. The recent serious excesses in Lemberg occurred under the very eyes of the police. A certain political party revealed in scandalous fashion to the public its responsibility for the excesses, Deputy Rosmarin asserted. The reference was to the National Democratic Party.
Where questions affecting the Jews are concerned, the government is generally under the influence of the National Democrats. It evinces no courage in the direction of energetic measures to deal with the situation, Deputy Rosmarin declared.
Deputy Rosmarin referred to the reports of the Polish Telegraphic Agency. The latter organization, while carrying other reports from abroad failed to mention the question raised in the House of Commons with regard to the Jewish situation in Poland by Colonel Josiah Wedgwood, he pointed out. He asked whether it was not in the path of duty of the Polish Telegraphic Agency to point out the damage to Poland’s reputation abroad as a result of the activities of the National Democrats.
