Poland Seizes Daily for Attack on Hitler

Download PDF for this date

Die Naje Folkszeitung, Yiddish Socialist daily, was confiscated by the Polish authorities today for having attacked Chancellor Adolf Hitler editorially.

Yiddish language papers in Warsaw were warned recently by the Polish censor not to criticize the Nazi regime and its leaders, on pain of confiscation. During the visit of Propaganda Minister Paul Joseph Goebbels to Warsaw, these newspapers frequently appeared with gaping holes in their pages, where articles striking at the Nazi cabinet member had been ordered removed.
