Catholics Ask Segregation in Polish Schools

Download PDF for this date

The segregation of Jewish pupils from Catholic children in the public schools and the elimination of Jewish teachers from the Polish school system were demanded in a memorandum turned over to the ministry of education today by a delegation representing Catholic parents in many townships.

In accepting the document the chief of the education department promised that his ministry would discuss the problem.

A movement on the part of Catholic parents and pupils to carry out proclaimed school strikes in a number of towns was met by the imposition of fines upon the strikers by the provincial government.
