Polish Jewish Deputies Attacked by Opposition

Download PDF for this date

The Jewish Kolo, club of the Jewish deputies in the Polish parliament, was sharply attacked today in the Sejm by the Polish Socialists and the Endeks, National Democrats, anti-Semitic, anti-government party, because the Jewish deputies abstained from voting for a motion of non-confidence in the Speaker of the Sejm.

The opposition alleges that the Speaker rushed through the adoption of the new consititution, without giving the opposition a chance to discuss the measure. The Jewish deputies also opposed the new constitution, which establishes a self-perpetuating dictatorship of the Pilsudski regime.
