Poland Orders Dissolution of Endek Groups

Download PDF for this date

All Endek anti-Semitic youth organizations in the district of Lodz, were dissolved today upon order from the Polish government following recent attacks upon Jewish pedestrians and shops in the city.

Endek youths, members of the National Democrat anti-Semitic party, participated in recent attacks on Jews in the streets of Lodz and upon Jewish cafes and shops in the predominantly Jewish neighborhoods.

A number of Jewish pedestrians were suddenly attacked by Endek bands, who at the same time raided Jewish shops and cafes, smashing windows and beating all Jews they found.

Several of the hooligans were arrested and their headquarters in the Jewish district closed. One of the Endeks arrested was the chief secretary of the Endek youth groups in Lodz.

Since the suppression of the Nara party the burden of the anti-Semitic campaign has fallen upon the shoulders of the Endeks.
