Polish Jews Attacked by Anti-semitic Deputy for Overcrowding Crafts

A vigorous attack on Polish Jewish artisans was made today in the Polish Sejm by the Endek deputy, Pietrycki, who declared that Polish Jews have overcrowded the ranks of the artisans. He stated that fifty-four percent of Polish artisans are Jews as compared with forty-eight percent in previous years. The Endek party, National Democrats, is the highly nationalistic and anti-Semitic political party, now in opposition to the Pilsudski regime.

The discussion in parliament arose over the government draft of the new artisan law which provides for a united artisans association, including the Jews.
