Download PDF for this date

A statement issued Friday night by the Federation of Polish Jews in America and the American Jewish Congress expressed “deep regret” at the assassination of Col. Pieracki and associated the attack on him with the series of attacks on Jews and with the presence in Poland of Dr. Goebbels. It expressed hope that the government would act vigorously to halt the attacks.

A resolution adopted at the convention of the Federation protesting against the excesses in Poland has been forwarded to the Polish government, according to word Friday from Dr. M. Marchlewski, Polish consul general. Dr. Marchlewski telegraphed the Federation from Washington that the protest had been forwarded, and declared that those guilty of perpetrating the outrages would be punished.
