Police Break Up Warsaw Demonstrations Against Palestine Restrictions

Download PDF for this date

Polish police dispersed demonstrations of Jews protesting against the curtailment of immigration into Palestine. The protest demonstrations were carried out in several places in Warsaw. Some of the demonstrators were arrested by the police.

The governing body of the Jewish community of Lodz unanimously adopted a resolution of protest against the decree of the Palestine government. The resolution of protest will be forwarded to the British government and the League of Nations.

Polish Jewry has reacted most violently to the recent order of the Palestine government sharply curtailing Jewish immigration, and to the campaign to deport all Jewish immigrants who entered Palestine illegally. The Jews of Poland have looked to Palestine as one of the few places that was capable of absorbing the many Jews anxious to emigrate from Poland.
