Polish Pinkshirts Agin’ Nazis As Well As Jews

Download PDF for this date

An anti-Semitic, anti-German Polish Fascist party has been formed in Kattowitz. Wearing pink shirts and replacing the swastika with a zigzag emblem, the newly organized group confines its membership to those of the “Aryan-Slavonic” race. Among the slogans are “Christians do not buy from Jews”, “Poland for Poles.” The organization opposes not only Jews but all national minorities. Robotnik, Warsaw daily, in reporting these facts, states that the potentialities of such an organization are difficult to foresee.
