Polish Police Destroy Anti-semitic Press

Download PDF for this date

A huge illegal mill for printing and distributing the government-banned Sztafeta, organ of Nara hoodlumism suppressed for incitement to atrocities against the Jews, was discovered and destroyed by police today on the business premises of one Lenczynsky, tradesman and active Nara agitator, who was arrested.

Towering stacks of freshly-printed issues of the Sztafeta and other anti-Semitic circulars and leaflets were found lining the walls and were burned. Some of them voiced threats of attacks against non-Jews who employed Jewish lawyers.
